Did you know?
Native South Americans call the flamingo “chogogo,” for the sounds it makes while feeding or flying!
Some indigenous tribes use flamingo fat as a cure for tuberculosis, while others eat the bird and its eggs!
Hours before hatching, flamingo chicks begin vocalizing within the egg – this establishes a bond with their parents so they can locate each other in a flock of thousands!
