Bonaire PINK!!

Bonaire is one of only a few breeding habitats left for flamingos in the world and everyday the parental units of a nest or offspring take turns flying to Venezuela to feed. Flocks can be seen coming or going everyday.

Flamingos can only eat with their heads upside down. They use their big beaks to rub blue algae ( which makes their feathers pink) and brine shrimp up off the bottoms of the salt pan lakes. As they stir it up, the swallow it down while their heads are still under the water.

Bonaire has alot of these lawn ornaments on different parts of the island.
