    Default Swaddled in Flamingo Down

    Last week the Franklin Park Zoo outside of Boston welcomed a new Chilean Flamingo chick. These flamingos create nests out of mounds of mud, which can reach two feet tall. A single egg is laid and is incubated by both the parents, who also jointly raise the chick. Thanks to photographer S. Woodruff for sharing these images.

    flamingos are beautiful, good thing because those are some mean birds - even worse than geese.

    Adorable! I don't think I've ever seen a baby flamingo before. Wish they made some plastic ones for the yard.
