[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There's quite an impressive Flamingo population in the Ngorongoro crater.
The lake in the crater supports thousands of flamingos and other birds. Here are greater and lesser flamingo mingling, along with some other birds. The greater flamingo is larger and has a pink bill with a black tip. A filter feeder, it preys on invertebrates which it sifts from the bottom mud using its bent bill.
Lesser flamingos, recognizable by their darker bills, primarily eat spirulina, a blue-green algae found in the shallows of alkaline lakes.
