Wow, some of you are truly flamingo afficionados! We, in contrast, have only two sadly molting flamingos. We seriously need for our tired old birds to hatch a flock of younguns. Now...we wonder how to create the romantic ambiance for flamingo magic to begin??? ~G

Marvin Gaye's music... I don't know depends on the generation of flamingo, they might prefer Perry Como

We have numerous flamingoes!

...about a dozen plastic pink yard ornaments - plus a small flag, several wine glasses with flamingoes at the bases, a garden chime set with a flamingo holding the chimes (his name is Horace), a suncatcher and a couple truly tacky dust-catchers made in China.

And we've just begun to gather them! I'm hoping my quest never ends!

We have a dozen flamingos stored under the gaucho that I like to use in a number of different configurations. In addition to those we have flamingo sheets, lights, pj's, lanterns, stuffed animals, knick-knacks and I can't remember what else!

They travel in pairs with me

I have 1 pair of Featherstone flamingo that travel with me. Before the great Union Products factory closing crisis last year I bought 4 extra pair. Three spare pairs stay home in case the original two "fly away". LI Pets won the fourth pair at the first Florida Can Opener lottery.

Hmmm, I just changed the sheets in the TW to the Nick & Nora "Flamingo on Ice" flannels. Do I have to count all of those?

American Pride

That's fantastic. The American plastic flamingo is alive and well, even during military operations.

the bird

2 featherstone flamingoes & a toledo torch I got in trade with another forum member (it is being nickel plated at the moment). I got to look for a small gazing globe (silver of course).

We have three. Two are the original plastic moldings and one that is a lawn sprinkler with flapping wings. We also have a Canadian goose which we have fooled people with at one camp out.

We have 2 - but they're concrete from the original 1950's molds. a bit too heavy to lug around camping.
