In brackish and shallow waters
The greater flamingo (Phoenicopterus roseus) is a large wading bird of the Phoenicopteridae family between 4.1 and 4.59 ft (125 and 140 cm) high. It lives in coastal environments and near brackish and shallow waters. In France, Camargue is the only region to observe greater flamingos, which particularly appreciate its salt marshes like in Aigues-Mortes, its lagoons, and its large coastal ponds. Thanks to its peculiarly shaped beak that may seem inverted, the flamingo can filter seawater and feed on a large quantity of the shrimps responsible for its pink color as well as seeds of aquatic plants and other algae.
