A young James' flamingo is followed by a full grown flamingo in its enclosure at the zoo in Berlin, Germany, Tuesday, Aug. 30, 2011. The young bird is one of three flamingos that were born between July and August 2011 at the Berlin zoo.
Pink Flamingos. Are actually white...the coloring of the feathers is a result of the food the flamingo eats. The majority of their diet consists of small shrimp-like crustaceans that contain a chemical called beta-carotene that colors the feathers.
