Greater Flamingo doing well yesterday

Just an update from my bean Lynettea. She saw the Flamingo yesterday at the Zoo and he was eating a tiny bit (not much, which is a concern), drinking some water and preening his feathers energetically.
He stood in the water for a long time with his other flamingo friend, then came and stood quite close to the path on the grass. He is still a very trusting flamingo.

Some Zoo Volunteers were watching over him carefully and visitors to the zoo were coming to check on him all the time. One small girl gave a card for the Greater Flamingo to Lynettea so she could give it to the staff at the Zoo. Lynettea is a Zoo Volunteer. The card was very pretty, as the little girl had drawn a nice picture of the flamingo on the front and neatly printed quite a long message to the flamingo inside the card.
The Zoo Staff told Lynettea that they are collecting all the cards and plan to do something with them.
I will post some new pictures of the flamingo soon.

I am glad that the flamingo did not lose all of his trust in humans after the incident. Keep getting better, Greater Flamingo!

Hi... been following your flamingo story (we have lots of them all around where we live), and glad to see things are coming along better.
PS... we left a comment for you on your earlier post, are you interested in participating in the Holidays in Oz? Please let us know one way or the other, thanks!

Thanks for the update on the flamingo. He's very brave and we hope he continues to recover.

If you get a chance in the next day or so, the human at Zoolatry is trying to get in touch with you. Drop her an email at zoolatry AT gmail DOT com if you get a chance.

We are so glad that the flamingo is doing better. I just read your other post about the incident. What mean teenagers they were to do this to a beautiful flamingo. People can be so cruel. We will purr and pray for the flamingo to feel much better.
