Chilian Flamingos
As Zoo Bird Animals

Chilean flamingos live in shallow brackish salt water lakes, coastal estuaries, and lagoons. Their geographic range includes central Peru, and south along the Andes to Tierra del Fuego. Flamingos have an elongated, sinuous neck, short tails, and a long wingspan. The plumage of the Chilean flamingo is paler than other species. Colors vary within a range of white, pale pink, rose, salmon to black. [from SF Zoo website]
