Who can resist watching flamingos? They are one of the most striking and beautiful birds on the planet. Their popularity is likely due to their elegance and the pink tones that distinguish them from other birds. But did you know that there are six different species of flamingo, three of which live in Chile?

One of them is the Andean Flamingo, which is also known as the Large Parina. Like the Chilean and James (Small Parina) flamingos, it lives in aquatic ecosystems: lakes, lagoons, wetlands and salt flats are some of its favorite places.

Only on the Chilean high plains is it possible to find these three species interacting with one another. The Chilean Flamingo is the only one that transverses lands extending from the north, in the Atacama Desert, to the extreme south, in Patagonia.
