Flamingo flock paints Saint Mama of Halkidiki pink!
Like every year, this year as well, a flamingo flock came to give color to the Saint Mamas Wetland! Flamingos, one of the most impressive birds on Earth, belong to the genus of phoenix and are characterized by a bright pink / orange color due to pigments they absorb from their food, such as shrimp.
For many years now flamingos migrate to St. Mamas to spend their winter because of the ideal location conditions. The wetland of Saint Mama is part of the Natura 2000 program, a pan-European network dedicated to the care and conservation of flora and fauna, with particular emphasis on the conservation of endangered species. In addition to the flamingos in the area, there are many other species of birds, such as the Collared Pratincole and the Himantopus, that reproduce there during the summer, as well as a wide variety of predators and ducks.
