Flamingos were either in Yucatan or on their way to Cuba when Hurricane Idalia hit them. The flamingos went with the winds instead of fighting them, as the eastern portion of the storm drove the birds up the western side of Florida.

But flamingos are big, strong birds, more than capable of making their way back home, like they did in 2019 following Hurricane Barry.

Birds are capable of things that we cannot imagine.

The FWC treats flamingos as a native species protected under the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
