   The world's largest colonies of Caribbean flamingos in Inagua National Park, Bahamas.
There, on 287 square miles, lives the world's largest colony of West Indian Flamingos. Driven almost to the point of extinction, flamingo "fine feathered friends" now number in the thousands, more than 60,000 in fact.
 The Caribbean flamingo is found throughout the Caribbean including Cuba, the Bahamas and Southern Florida, the Galapagos Islands and the Northern coast of South America. Thousands of these birds live together in salt lakes, lagoons and mudflats.
Pink? The flamingos’ colour is a result of their diet. Their brilliant red, hot pinks, corals and oranges come from the “carotenoid” pigments in the algae and in some of the crustaceans that the birds eat (similar to the pigment in carrots). Their scientific name “Phoenicopterus” is from the Greek word for flamingo and means 'red-feathered'.
