Lesser Flamingo
These long-legged beauties can be found in their thousands in Kenyas incredible rift valley lakes. Most of the Rift Valley lakes are alkaline and have blooms of blue-green algae on which the flamingos feed. They feed by siphoning the algae with their incredible curved beaks, and the algae in turn give them their stunning pink color!
