Flamingo courtship

Duration: 01:00

Three species of flamingos live on the Salar Uyuni salt lake, which lies on the Altiplano in the Andes of Bolivia. In this sequence one of those species - the Andean flamingo - forms a group and does a bizarre looking courtship dance. The flamingos walk about in formation with their necks stretched up high, and turn their heads quickly to and fro.
