This is the first flamingo species I've seen anywhere, so this was especially satisfying...particularly after missing this bird in Florida a couple times before.
The beach wasn't especially birdy, but there were some things to see. Two white morph REDDISH EGRETS were fun to watch. One of these birds was carrying a rather obvious satellite transmitter on its back, but it went about its business as usual despite the backpack.

And other flybys...
