I love birds! Any kind of bird! Especially BIG birds! Any color of bird! How much fun it would be to be a bird for one day! Just think of all you could see if you were a bird, flying around! Even though they don't fly, the flamingo is one of my favorites! I also like to pick up any kind of bird. This one would be quite a handful, but fun to hold! I doubt that I will ever get a chance to hold a flamingo :( But I sure will continue to gaze at them.
