Flamingo, several species of colorful water birds of the family Phoenicopteridae, related to herons. Flamingos have long spindly legs and necks, and large bills with bristles that they use to sift their food from the water. Their plumage is white, pink, and black. They live in large flocks on alkaline lakes in America, Africa, and southern Eurasia.
