From the book:

The name flamingo originates with the Spanish and Latin word flamenco, meaning "fire." Their bright-colored feathers are not only glamorous, but the bold, pink color comes from a flamingo's food. Similar to ibis, flamingos feed on algae and crustaceans that have carotenoid pigments. The pigments, once ingested, create a flamingo's pink coloring. However, a flamingo's color doesn't come at birth. Several years must pass before they reach peak color and grow their distinctive curved bills. Flamingos are incredibly social birds; they congregate in a flock called a flamboyance and are always near bodies of water. Here, flamingos find mates for life and begin families with one egg per year.
