Flamingos   

1     When we think of the state of Florida, many things come to mind. Right away, we think of the state's year-round warm climate, beautiful beaches, and famous amusement parks. If we focus on animals living in Florida, the image of a tall, slender pink bird quickly emerges. Do you know what that bird is? That's right! It is the flamingo! (Here is an interesting fact: Even though we often think of flamingos with Florida, they are not Florida's state bird! Mockingbirds are.)
 
2     Standing up to five feet tall, flamingos have long necks and even longer legs. They like to live in places that many animals shun. The often are found in saline waters, shallow lagoons, or alkaline lakes. There are five different species of flamingos in the world. Australia and Antarctica are the only two continents with no flamingos.
 
3     When flamingos fly, they stretch out their necks and legs in a straight line across the sky. When they decide to take a rest, they often tuck one leg under their tummies and balance their weight on the other. Amazingly, they can hold this posture for hours!
