Synopsis : With their curious feeding behaviour, peculiar elongated body, gregarious social lives and exotic pink plumage, flamingos are among the most familiar and popular of all the world's birds. They have inspired artists, poets and amateur naturalists for centuries, but until 50 years ago very little was known about their biology. A growing number of scientists have directed their attention to these magnificent birds over recent years; this book summarises current understanding of flamingo biology, with detailed discussion of population dynamics, ecology, movements, feeding, breeding biology and conservation, with emphasis placed on the authors' work on the famous population of Greater Flamingos in the Camargue region of southern France. There is also a detailed guide to breeding areas, and an outline of future challenges for research.

Critique: "...an outstanding account from personal experience and dedicated research, and a superb compilation of information that unravels the mystery of the flamingo."
-- Ibis (April 2009)

Cyril Girard's cover painting of flamingos settling to land conjures up the grace and colour with which they are associated, and whether they first entered your consciousness as croquet mallets or the pink-winged stars of a tv wildlife spectacular, this book is a gift.

A dozen chapters provide a comprehensive analysis of greater flamingo history, ancestry, ecology and numbers; the species' movements, breeding, survival and conservation; an inventory of the most important breeding sites and a debate on the bird's future.

We owe a great debt to the foresight and zeal with which people such as Johnson, Cezilly and Hoffman fought for these birds, and the remote, wild and fragile places they need to survive. -- BBC Wildlife, January 2008
