The American Flamingo is one of John James Audubon’s most iconic and recognizable images. Bold and beautiful.
John James Audubon saw Flamingos during a trip to the Florida Keys in the 1830’s. It was from this experience that he was inspired to include this species in his “Birds of America”.
Although no longer a common sight in Florida, they do occur in the Everglades and Florida Bay, although rare. Larger, established populations can be found in the Bahamas, Cuba, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.
