Colonies of pink flaming migrate from one lake to another throughout the year coming to Lake Manyara National Park in the period from June to September. As their abode, they choose the mudflats where crustaceans, which are the main diet, live. Without it, their feathers have grey-while color. While newly hatched flamingos are always grey they became pink as they get older –in the year thanks to the pigment carotene which is contained in their food.
