Flamingos are among the most iconic of birds. They have been long thought to be among the most ancient of living birds, a relict lineage related to either waterfowl or storks. But new studies of these graceful birds recast them as a relatively new avian group.
Imagine arriving home after work, school, or after running some errands to a front yard full of pink flamingos. For many in Houma, Louisiana it is not uncommon to see flamingos 'flocking' their neighborhoods and businesses.
