Flamingos flock in groups of several hundred birds. They often perform their mating displays together, like the flamingos pictured. The colour of their feather is a result of their diet, pigments in their food called “carotenoids” are responsible for the red and pink colours of their feathers. A flamingo will spend 15-30% of the day in the cleaning their feathers, oil produced in a special gland will be spread over feathers with help of their beaks.

The lesser flamingo is a species of flamingo mainly occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. The Lesser flamingo is the smallest species of flamingo, although it is tall and a large bird by most standards. The species can weigh from 1.2 to 2.7 kg and standing height between 80 to 90cm.

The clearest difference between this species and the greater flamingo is the much more extensive black billon the bill. The final coin in the series features a flock of lesser flamingos congregated together, the reddish pink colour is really accentuated in its body.

The coin shows most of the plumage is pinkish white with slightly darker pink legs. The adult Flamingos on the coin have a pink plumage. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
