Flamingos owe the striking pink color of their wings to their diet?

Their diet basically consists of microscopic red crustaceans which live at the bottom of the lagoons and the salt pans. Flamingos can be seen in the Axios Delta National Park year round, but the largest populations –more than 1.700 birds- can be observed during winter in the Alyki Kitrous Lagoon. Flamingos are observed in Greek wetlands only the last 20 years. They don’t breed here; they travel for this reason to France, Spain, Italy and other countries.
