The Lesser Flamingo is the smallest type of flamingo out of the six global species. It is found in parts of Africa and India (the populations are separate).
Lesser Flamingos are usually associated with very highly alkaline bodies of water, from which they feed on a specific kind of algae.
Lesser Flamingos are considered to be Near Threatened. They are the most numerous species of flamingo, yet their population is trending downward and they face threats to their few major breeding wetland sites.
