All things Flamingo...

Seeing the post about *authentic* flamingos today, getting Airstream Life and reading the posting from 2Air, I thought I would share my flamingo finds... now these are things probably made in China or who-knows-where besides the U.S. But when you are needing just the right accessory for your Airstream... check out these websites:

Uptown Flamingo: Fun Pink Flamingo Stuff of All Sorts! Clothing, Jewelry, Christmas merchandise and more all with pink flamingos.

The Pink Flamingo - outdoor accents for your lawn and garden: weathervanes, cupolas, address plaques, hammocks, swings, stepping stones, outdoor clocks & thermometers, wind chimes, memorial stones, dinner bells, Union Products plastic flamingoes, Don

Flamingo & Pink flamingos (aka the Flamingo Super Store)

Anyone else have finds for flamingo items? Let us know!

the real thing...

national geographic has done several good pieces on the pink birds...

and taken some amazing photos...

here

Hot Pink @ National Geographic Magazine

and here

National Geographic: Through the Eyes of the Gods: Photo Gallery

covering the lesser bird and the greater bird. there was a cover story some years ago...which issue?

i've got a box of amazing photos taken at the morton salt site...where the birds nest.

the natural colors and contrasts are something to see.

cheers

Hi guys--- Yes, there are lots of China copies out there. In fact I was shocked when doing my research for the Airstream Life article that the Flamingos at JC are not the real ones! As I posted, there is a rare cache of originals available but the will go quick. But for now I think any Pink Flamingo will do! The whole idea is to have fun and show your color! PINK!

No kidding. I was DISAPPOINTED when I received my $$$ birds from JC and found out they were fakes.

I don't tell them though, they don't cause any trouble and they seem to enjoy traveling in "The Tube" and being put out at campsites. They got "real" friends about 2 years ago. Found them in a grocery store on Cape Cod on sale for $6.00 for the pair. Those were the days........
