My Weekend WTF?!: Flock of DC Flamingos!

What bird would you be most shocked to see on a cold winter day in Washington DC? In your wildest, most hallucinogenic, toad-licking dreams would you ever think to see flamingos?

I sure never did till I turned a new-to-me corner of the National Zoo and had this bright pink flock in my eye:

Check it out, we have flamingos in the nation’s capitol! Who would’ve thunk it?

    Very cool, Wayan! That’s a bizarro shot seeing those exotic birds in such a depressing environment. I’ll have to go check those out sometime.

    We have them here in Chicago at the Lincoln Park Zoo year-round as well; apparently, flamingo’s are much hardier birds than you’d think and can stand Chicago winters with little problem.
