Flamingo Friday: What Time Is It?




It's head-flagging time!



Courtship season is upon us--at least for the zoo's flamingos, and I got lots of photos, so stay tuned...

Is it a matter of who is the tallest or who looks the proudest?

I don't think height is a real draw for flamingos, but pride and confidence may well be!

Head-flagging is part of an elaborate series of courtship steps that include wing salutes, head bowing, and backward preening. They do the head-flagging en masse, so maybe the ability to stay synchronous is important?

It is for albatrosses. Great shots!
