The Andean Flamingo is a species of flamingo found in high mountain wetlands in the Andes of South America. They move to lower altitude wetlands for the winter.
Like other flamingos, Andean Flamingos are filter feeders, using their special beaks to filter food out of lake water.
Andean Flamingos are considered vulnerable to extinction due to a rapid population decline over the 1980s and 1990s, mostly due to changes in their preferred habitat due to mining. As of the mid 2010s the population is considered stable though still below historical numbers.
