Lesser Flamingos
(Phoenicopterus minor)
Lesser Flamingos are seen in Lake Begoria, Kenya.   There are five species of Flamingos, plus two subspecies worldwide, in the tropical Americas, tropical Old World, the Andes and Africa.   'Flamingo' comes from Portuguese and Spanish flamengo "flame-coloured", in turn coming from Provencal flamenc from flama "flame" and Germanic-like suffix - ing.
