When you think of pink feathers in Las Vegas, your first thought is probably a showgirl’s headdress. But there is another creature that sports that look on the Las Vegas strip, and it resides in a hotel of the same name: The Flamingo.

So…I have to admit…I kind of refer to the Flamingo as a “nursing home.” There’s something about the vibe there, mostly the muted color-scheme that reminds me of the Golden Girls. So, if you find yourself there, and maybe, want to get out for a bit, take a step into their courtyard Wildlife Habitat.

The garden is full of foliage imported from around the world and houses over 300 types of birds.

Until recently one of the birds was the penguin, but they have been relocated to the Dallas Zoo.

Now its the Flamingos themselves who truly steal the show at the Wildlife Habitat. And that’s probably a good thing because they are the headliners.
