Flamingos are instantly recognisable with their long legs and necks and pink plumage. These are one of the larger flamingo species, up to 1.5 metres tall.
Chilean flamingos are found on high mountain lakes in Chile, Peru, Bolivia and Argentina.
Chilean flamingos live in large flocks of several thousand birds. Flamingos lay a single egg on a nest made of a mound of mud.
