Andean Flamingo

Phoenicoparrus andinus (Philippi Sr, RA, 1854)

The Andean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus andinus) is one of the rarest flamingos in the world. It has a pale pink body with brighter upperparts, deep vinaceous-pink lower neck, breast, and wing-coverts. It is the only flamingo species with yellow legs and three-toed feet. The bill of the Andean Flamingo is pale yellow and black. This flamingo is native to the wetlands of the high Andes mountain range from southern Perú to northwestern Argentina and northern Chile. The Andean Flamingo is a migratory bird with the ability to travel up to 700 miles in one day. These flamingos are filter-feeders and their diet ranges over the entire spectrum of available foods, from fish to invertebrates, from vascular plants to microscopic algae. Source: Wikipedia
