GREATER FLAMINGO
Phoenicopterus ruber

 

Perhaps the most well-known bird of Bonaire is the Greater Flamingo, thousands of which may often be seen on the island. Largest numbers occur in the Pekelmeer at the flat, southern end of the island but also at Lac Bay, Lake Goto, and scattered other locations. Flocks can sometimes be seen flying out over the sea towards the Venezuelan coast to feed.
