Who's Taller?

Posted by
Pied Crow (Abuja, Nigeria) on 4 January 2010 in Animal & Insect.

The two greater flamingos in the foreground here are males caught in an "I'm taller than you are" dominance display. The flock here is mostly lesser flamingos with a few greater flamingos mixed in (and a few other birds). This was taken in a small soda lake next to, but not connected to, the freshwater Lake Naivasha. These flamingos "commute" between the soda and freshwater lakes of the Rift Valley.
