It will be interesting to see what evidence can be gained on its origin.
Escapee? Wanderer from the south?

The Flamingo was still there when the front chased us off at around 5:00 pm.

Don Morrow sent me an email exchange he had with Jim Young, who photo'd a
flamingo on SB #1 yesterday morning. I went out to the refuge immediately
(shortly after noon) and the bird was in Stony Bayou #1 about half way out
the double dikes. I went to look for the frigate birds that were seen near
the lighthouse (no luck) and on the way out at ~2:30 the flamingo had moved
a bit farther southeast in SB #1.

It is an American Flamingo, tricolored bill, reddish legs, neck and tail
darker pink than back/wings, which had a few grayish feathers. I have
several photos.

I think it would be good if folks continued to post sightings of this bird
so those who want to see it know it is still around. Matt
