American Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber)

Scaled collection of drawings of American Flamingo in various poses with dimensions

The American Flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber) is the only flamingo species that naturally inhabits North America. They have a reddish pink plumage with red wing coverts; the secondary flight feathers are black, and the bill is pink and white with a black tip. The legs are slender and entirely pink. As they live in shallow-water environments, the American Flamingo has adapted with long legs and large webbed feet to wade and stir up the bottom of the water bed bringing up food to be retrieved. Their diets heavily depend on the food source in the area, and if available food items do not meet their needs, they move to better feeding areas.
