I’m not sure about you, but if I was flying over a body of water and I saw this down below, I’d be pretty intrigued. I’d definitely want to try to get a little lower and try to find out more about what’s going on here.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to someone that flying over Lake Nakura in Kenya. As they started looking closer and closer, they realized what they were seeing... and it’s totally mind-blowing!
At first glance, it almost looks like a bubblegum colored oil spill.
But, that’s obviously not what it could be... right?
Wait, is that...?
There’s no way! Is that really a MASSIVE flock of birds?
Wow! That’s exactly what it is!
This is a colony of flamingos.
A really, really, REALLY big colony.
They look like they’re gathering to start their plot for world domination.
As it turns out, flamingos are known to sometimes gather in colonies, where they sift for their favorite type of algae together. Sometimes, these colonies can be comprised of thousands, or even millions, of these birds. This group is roughly 1.5 million flamingos standing around together.
