One of my favorite places when traveling in the Yucatan was Rio Lagartos, famous for its colony of Pink Flamingos
This morning, an email from Cornell Lab of Ornithology lead me to a video on the banding and release of baby flamingos in Rio Lagartos.
I first saw the Boat-billed Heron (Cochlearius cochlearius) while on a boat ride through the mangroves at Rio Lagartos, and its call sounded like laughing. I also saw a Least Bittern sitting on a wooded bridge that our boat was going under. But the highlight of Rio Lagartos is the colony of Pink Flamingos; awe inspiring and definitely worth visiting.
