[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Greater Flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) is the most widespread species of the flamingo family. It is found in parts of Africa, southern Asia (coastal regions of Pakistan and India), and southern Europe (including Spain, Albania, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Italy and the Camargue region of France). Some populations are short distance migrants, and sightings north of the breeding range are relatively frequent; however, given the species' popularity in captivity, whether or not these are truly wild individuals is a matter of some debate. A single bird was seen on North Keeling Island (Cocos (Keeling) Islands) in 1988.
Wikipedia

Flamingolar büyük topluluklar halinde, durgun sulara sahip göl, tuz gölü, ya da lagünlerde yaşalar. Diğer hayvan türlerinin az bulunduğu, sıra dışı doğa koşullarının bulunduğu yerlere gelirler. Örnek olarak tuz gölleri ya da alkalik içerikli göller verilebilir. Kısacası bu kuş türü tuzlu ve sodalı sığ sularda yaşar. Bunların dışında ısı farklılığının aşırılıklar gösterdiği durumlara da katlanabilirler.

Bulundukları ortamda kuş gruplarının birey sayısı 1 milyonu bulabilir.
Flamingo (Allı turna)
Genelde yengeç, karides, artemia gibi eklem bacaklı hayvanları, karınca larvası ve yosun yerler. Aşağı doğru eğik gagası sayesinde, yiyecekleri çok zor ortamlarından dahi çıkarabilirler.
