    I spotted an element of 2 pink flamingos on a westerly heading about 500ft. They were on approx 270 bearing from KPMP Just west of hwy 27. They were around SoFla in the past. I remember seeing them as a kid. But I haven't seen one In the wild for about 40 yrs. Beautiful birds. Hope they come back. Probably escaped from Maralago.

    I saw flamingos flying at two spots near Tampa a few weeks ago. I was in a car, would’ve been fun to see them from a plane.
