Phoeniconaias – Lesser Flamingo
This bird holds a Guinness book of world records to its name: largest flamingo colony
The lesser flamingoes are the smallest of all flamingo species. The males, slightly taller than the females, breed in lagoons and brackish or salty lakes with significant alkalinity levels. On coastal mudflats, saltworks, and sewage treatment facilities where salinities are high, non-breeding birds may be found.
The lesser flamingo is a roving animal. In addition to Spain, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Oman, and Yemen, it may be found throughout Africa.
The lesser flamingo has a magnificent courting show that occurs all year long. Birds congregate in small to large groups and march back and forth in a single direction.
They assemble in Tanzania throughout the summer in the biggest group of flamingo species worldwide.
