South Tama County could see pink

January 19, 2013
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

This coming spring people living in the South Tama County area could begin to see more than plants and trees come back to life. It's quite possible they could host some very unique pink visitors, a very rare species of pink flamingos as they change their migratory pattern to include Tama County.

"This will be a real treat for people living in your location.", said Dr. Marty Malarkey, a leading ornithologist from Balderdash University, "These are beautiful birds and extremely rare. I have studied them and their habits for many years and have been fascinated with them."

Dr. Malarkey's recommendation should a flock decide to make your property or area a temporary home is to "not approach or handle them in any way. They are not dangerous by any means and will not harm anyone's property." Dr. Malarkey also wants to assure homeowners they are "not a messy bird at all" so clean up after they depart should not be an issue. "They simply are looking for a spot to rest for a bit. I am sure their presence will benefit a certain group in the area, and then they will fly off, possibly to make a return visit the following year if they deem this particular area a welcoming one."
