The Passing Parade

On the saline lakes of the East African Rift Valley, large flocks of flamingoes are often encountered. They are nomadic so seeing them is never garanteed and is always a treat. In the wild they are much pinker than those kept in capitivity. It is very excitng to see them in their courtship display where they form a tight group and parade together with their heads held high and neck feathers fluffed.
