As the swallows return to Capistrano in the Spring, so do the flamingos return to our little town on the prairie in the summer.
It's not a large flock but it does stay within the city limits as it moves from house to house. Usually staying a week before they move on.
Some of them have been around for a while and actually we have three different broods -- but they are all pink and they are all flamingos! And they all like to flock!
The reason that the flamingos return to our town every summer . . . .it's a funraiser sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce Tourism Division. It makes a little money but the smile that flock of flamingos bring to our visitors is why we do it.
Other towns may have their cows on their horses -- we have the flamingos!
It's Pink Saturday -- and what is pinker than a flamingo? -- so please join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and have a great Pink Saturday!
