A flock of flamingos were photographed on the beach of the Free Trade Zone in Shuwaikh on their migratory route. Flamingos are one of the species of migratory birds that often stop at Kuwait’s beaches in the spring and later in the fall, usually in the months of April and November.

The birds are one of the migratory species that visit Kuwait, seeking the moderate weather conditions and searching for their next meal, specifically oysters and shrimps. A flock are quite a sight due their bright pink plumage and their graceful movements on the clear blue waters. Many onlookers enjoy taking photographs of flamingos in Kuwait for their blogs or photography portfolio as these beautiful birds make wonderful subjects.

These famous pink birds can be found in warm, watery regions on many continents. They favour environments like estuaries and saline or alkaline lakes. Considering their appearance, flamingos are surprisingly fluid swimmers, but really thrive on the extensive mud flats where they breed and feed.

Shrimplike crustaceans are responsible for the flamingo's pink color. The birds pale in captivity unless their diet is supplemented.
