Flamingos are very social birds that live in colonies that can number in the thousands, so we know in large lake Africa or America.

However, in Calafate colonies can not be counted by thousands but by tens.

But the colors stand out against the gray of the mountains, the sky blue and dark blue of the lake.

Obviously, it is to make two thousand miles to see Flamengo. But for deternse and see … may be wondering how these birds with their feet stuck in the cold waters of Lake Argentino. And while you can enjoy some good mates on the shores of the lake (recommended for tourists: Try the Mate!).
