The family Phoenicopteridae is comprised of six species of flamingos. These gregarious wading birds are found in both the Old and New World. Flamingos filter-feed on brine shrimp. Their oddly-shaped beaks are specially adapted to separate mud and silt from the food they eat, and are uniquely used upside-down.
