adopt a flamingo

The National Zoo is within walking distance of my home, so maybe I'll check and see if I can find a live version, but here's my flamingo contribution for the time being . . .


. . . coming courtesy of one of my collection of Richard Scarry books that I just can't seem to part with from my childhood:

Whoa, I just checked the National Zoo web site and, not only can I adopt a flamingo (you can too), there's a Flamingo Cam! Alright, I'll get my butt over there for a real flamingo picture asap.

Love the Richard Scarry!

Would the flamingoes be out in winter in DC?

Well, if the Flamingo Cam is real time, it looks like they might be. I'll report back.

Good idea!
Hmmm, I'm having a real problem getting a flamingo picture. I might have to get REAL creative too....

Very interesting.

Minnesota in winter is not yielding any pink flamingos.

Creativity be gone! I may just toss up another suggestion!
