Meanwhile, in the Caribbean

Meanwhile, in the Caribbean Photo
Flamingos soak up the sun as they wade through tropical Caribbean wetlands. These long-legged waterbirds scour the shallows for carotenoid-packed snacks–food sources that foster their pink hues. As part of a monitoring effort on behalf of the species, WCS recently visited a colony in the Bahamas to band juvenile birds for future tracking. The bands will enable researchers to identify individual birds and monitor their migrations to various breeding colonies throughout the Caribbean.
