Wading Birds

Flamingos are wading birds. They tend to enjoy regions where there is plenty of water or mud. in areas close to lagoons, lakes and swamps. They live in waters that are alkaline in nature so if the balance changes and there is too much acid they won’t be able to survive in it. They reside in both the tropic and subtopic regions. They need the salt in the water for the food sources that they consume- such as shrimp but they need to live in a region where there is access to plenty of fresh water.
