Flamingos Feeding



We know flamingos have upside-down beaks because they feed upside-down, but have you ever seen them do it? This underwater footage captures them in the act at the San Diego Zoo.

These pretty in pink birds feed by sucking in water and mud at the front of their bills, then pumping it out at the sides. Briny plates called lamellae act like tiny filters, trapping shrimp and other small water creatures for the flamingos to eat. Everybirdy loves seafood!
