Lets ‘Flamingle’: The Flamingo a Pretty Gregarious Bird.


'Let's Flamingle'

I love this phrase - ‘Let’s Flamingle’. It conjures up images of flocks of flamingos with their long necks in-twined and lots of noise and pink wings flapping.

Or the human equivalent with music and loud voices.

Party Time

Gatherings with people leaning into each other to hear over the party noise or laughing with their heads tossed back flapping their wings (arms) in enjoyment.

Many humans will have red faces after a wine or two.

And I suppose many humans will have red faces after a wine or two at a party much like the Flamingos red feathers after eating a prawn or two.

Sorry I have gone right off topic back to Flamingos and ‘Flamingling’ (parties)!

Flamingo young are born white, with soft, downy feathers.

Flamingos do not need to be relegated to only party themes.

The pretty, gregarious bird is well suited to adorn many other celebration where groups of people come together, such as Baby showers (Flamingo young are born white, with soft, downy feathers).

Flamingo Facts

Some Flamingo facts (from a New York Times article by NATALIE ANGIER )

Flamingos are ancient birds, with flamingo like fossils dating back at least 50 million years.

​​

​​Flamingos are found patchily throughout the world, wherever there are shallow salt pans, They have specialised salt glands that allow them to excrete excess salt they ingest.

​​The birds may seem to epitomize the tropics, but they also live in the Andes, 15,000 feet above sea level, where they rest on lakes that freeze around them overnight.

(I must do a range of custom invitations and cards featuring Flamingos in Beanies!)

​​​​A Chilean flamingo that escaped from a Utah aviary made a home for itself in the Great Salt Lake, where it lived as a local celebrity for some 15 years and was given the nickname Pink Floyd.
