Jeff Wendorff's Bird Photography: Flamingos (Phoenicopteridae) Flamingo Wiki
Flamingos or flamingoes are a type of wading bird in the family Phoenicopteridae, the only bird family in the order Phoenicopteriformes. Four flamingo species inhabit the Americas, including the Caribbean, and two species are native to Africa, Asia, and Europe.
Flamingos usually stand on one leg with the other tucked beneath their bodies. The reason for this behavior is not fully understood, and it could be to conserve energy or naturally be more comfortable. Flamingos may stamp their webbed feet in the mud to stir up food from the bottom to get at their prey. Flamingos Photographed

The flamingo has several collective nouns, and for once, I agree with more than one! A group of flamingos can be called a stand, a flamboyance, a colony, a flurry, a flame or a regiment. Photography Workshops and Tours
