In the pink….?

I think every zoo in America has flamingos! I guess because we never get tired of watching….especiallly when there are fluffy little babies:

Okay – enough with flamingo babies – let’s talk ducky babies for a minute.

This little ducky had NO FEAR of those great-big-pink-things! He was swimmin’ around, checkin things out, without a care in the world!

And can we talk child social services here…?? His mom DIDN’T CARE AT ALL!

We watched this little ducky weaving around the flamingos (who are 1 million times bigger than he is I might add) for about 10 minutes with no sign of mom, until she finally swam over from all the way across the enclosure —

SHEESH! That little ducky was UNSUPERVISED! Who knows what kind of trouble he could have gotten into….honestly!

Flamingo babies are born in nests built right in shallow water. Baby flamingos can swim before they are even old enough to leave the nest! They begin to grow feathers after one year. Their bill also begins to curve at this time. Newly hatched flamingos have whitish color feathers, straight bill, and pink legs.
