Birdwatchers spot Flamingos in Amsterdam

Filed under: Animals by Orangemaster @ 10:57 am


Birdwatchers are thrilled to have spotted a flock of five flamingos in Amsterdam, which is a rare sight. They’re not from a zoo, as they’ve not been tagged. They’ve probably come from southern Europe and are staying as they can find food easily. The birds should stay about three years. German flamingos are often seen in the Netherlands, but are tagged and usually go back home.

Cue Miami Vice opening sequence (video).
