Migrating flamingos make a stop at Israel

Recently, flocks of flamingos stopped for a rest at a reservoir in Israel during their migration to Africa. The pinkish and white plumage of flamingos glowed against the blue sky, creating a vivid wildlife scenery.

Flamingo is a wading bird. It gets the name from the Portuguese or Spanish word "flamengo," which means "flame-colored." The vibrant color of their feathers comes from a red-orange pigment that is found in flamingos' food, such as brine shrimp and larvae.
