Flamingo Shows Up In Autrain Lake
How it got there, nobody knows, but a flamingo has shown up on the shores of Autrain Lake.
Normally, the species is pink, but this one is mostly white with pink-tipped wings. Experts say the color can vary, and often does when the bird's diet changes.
Flamingos are native to South and Central America and Africa, and are found in the United States only in zoos or special exhibitions.
So the question remains, how did this lone bird get to the Upper Peninsula?
"We were thinking that the weather's been so hot and that could be one reason that it's come up to visit us, or maybe a hurricane blew it up," said Herb Blackstock, the owner of Northern Nights. "We just don't know."
