Wordless Wednesday ( Almost ) I Love Flamingos

For Wordless Wednesday .. I will be almost wordless. This is a beautiful vintage post card postmarked 1946 of Flamingos and Nests at Hialeah Park, Miami, Florida. The post card is addressed to Mrs E C Foster of Newton Kansas from Clara and Brad.
The unique feature of Hialeah Park is its great flock of Flamingos. These birds were imported from Cuba and South America and in 1939 for the first time, Flamingos were raised to maturity in this country. That first season 62 birds were hatched at Hialeah and this year there were almost one hundred. The young birds are white and take on their rich coloring with maturity. Flamingos are fed a mixture of boiled rice, dried shredded shrimp, grains and cod liver oil.
I love looking at Flamingos... what a beautiful unique bird they are.

Have a wonderful Wednesday... Grace
