We came back from our trip to see that we had been overrun by an exotic species — we'd been flamingoed! Actually our good friends played a joke on us. The flamingos were everywhere and matched our pink tulips.

They were drinking out of our bird bath

and eating at our bird feeder

and cavorting in the shrubbery.

These are obviously not real flamingos. To see real flamingos you either have to go to a zoo or animal park. Sometimes, you might see an escapee from these places. If you want to see wild Greater Flamingos, you need to go to Everglades National Park in Florida where occasionally, wild birds from the Bahamas fly by.

As to the domestic flamingo flock that visited us — who knows where they will turn up next.
