Flamingo – Phoenicopterus Ruber
Habitat: American flamingos are found in central and northern South America. They also live on several Caribbean islands, as well as the Galapagos. They live in lagoons, estuaries, mud flats and lakes.
Adaptations: Flamingos are filter-feeders, sweeping their curved bills through the water with their heads held upside down. The bill filters the water and mud, and the bird swallows the prey. Their tongue and beak have comb-like filaments that act as filters when feeding.
