Caption: American flamingo (Phoenicopterus ruber). This large wading bird feeds on shrimp, plant matter and insects. Its pink colour is due to pigments in the shrimp that make up a large part of its diet. The American flamingo inhabits the lakes and coastal waters of the Caribbean, Central America and South America.
