We had read about the fishing village of Celestun, known for its good seafood restaurants, but also for the flamingo colonies. November to January is the main courtship time for the flamingos and we were about a month outside of that, but decided it would be a nice drive and fun day trip.
American flamingos, the only ones found in North America. They have a life expectancy of 40 years!
And move as a flock...
This guy got left behind. And with that last look, we turned to leave. We didn't see as many flamingos as we've heard there are during the main courtship months, but it was still pretty cool.
