Most species of flamingo are a pinky/orange colour, some however can be white, black or even blue. The colour of the flamingo comes from the flamingo eating a type of algae that then turns the flamingo into the bright pink pink that we are so familiar with.
Today's bird breed of the day is the Sulphur-crested cockatoo. These birds are common pets. They are very social and love to be around people or other birds. The can be VERY noisy birds so if noise is a problem a cockatoo wouldn't be recommend for your family. There are different types of cockatoos.
