1. The other day I went the zoo and I came back with a flamingo crush. Their grace and pink color is so gorgeous and unique! [ Please tell me: why isn't there a flamingo emoji? ]

2. The word "flamingo" comes from the Spanish and Latin word "flamenco" which means fire, and refers to the bright color of the birds' feathers.

3. Flamingo chicks are born gray or white and take up to three years to reach their mature pink, orange or red plumage. Their young feathers are much less structured and fluffy than adult plumage, but that down provides excellent insulation to help keep baby flamingos warm.

The meeting

"We don't talk anymore." ;0)

"Be a flamingo in a flock of pigeons."
