Pink Flamingos in Ecuador!!!  Huh!!!

We were sitting with a friend on our deck, when she exclaimed!!!  "Are those pink flamingos???"

Well, we've lived in Ecuador almost six years, and we've never even heard of them being here, let alone seeing any, but...

There they were, huge, pink flamingos, flying in formation, right around in front of us!!!

And...we were all completely sober!!!

Of Course, we all ran to our Google search engines, and sure enough, there are lots of them--but they are in Peru, Chili, and Brazil, mostly...

Their habitat map does not show them ranging this far north, but I guess somebody forgot to tell those majestic birds!  

Except in the San Francisco Zoo, Rox and I have never seen a flamingo, and never see one flying...

They are magnificent!  Their necks stick out straight for about a yard!

Here are a couple of photos just like the flying birds we saw...

 

 Here is one standing...


 And...not to be outdone, we had a big iguana join us above our deck...just taking in the sun...

 Are we still having fun???--you bet!
