Meet Adelaide

Miss Adelaide came with the name, Splits - she is a beanie baby, but since all of my flamingos are boys, it seemed time for a girl flamingo with a real name. I still love the others, don't worry.

Meet the newest member of the Preservation in Pink flamingo family, Miss Adelaide.

Forgetting the others? Check out the family portraits.

Mr. Stilts & Squawky (whose name comes from the imagined sound that flamingos make - squawk. Poor thing needs a better name. Ideas?

Pip, the first flamingo mascot.

 Disclaimer: I really haven’t named any of these flamingos, except Adelaide. Welcome to the flamingo family!
