This post is dedicated to Pedro Genaro Rodriguez, aka "Flamingo Man".
OK, one plastic pink flamingo is definitely a garden no-no, but A FLOCK is a statement. Ironic? Fun? Whatever. Found them at K-Mart. End of season cheap. Had to bring them to Furball Cottage. Almost got served divorce papers by the purist in my life. He said they had to migrate south, pronto. Then I showed him the box. Made in the USA, in Atlanta, to be specific. How many things at K-Mart are made in the USA? Begrudgingly they're staying in the marsh for now. They'll spend the winter in the garden shed and come spring... well, what if I count them as part of the Great Migration and send the numbers to the Cape May Bird Observatory? After all, they're American birds. And yes, they're staying.
