    These are some pictures of some of my Flamingo collection. They are displayed in our flamingo room (our sunroom). The first three pics are of some of the glass shelfs above the window, these are just three of six. The fourth is our folding screen. Started collecting thes birds in the late seventies, usually paying 2 or 3 dollars apiece.

      Thanks chevy59, Hedgewalker, and BeauxPurdy. Yes Hedgewalker, I usually have two on the lawn outside the sunroom. But they come in for the South Dakota winter. Mine are vintage 40's cement birds standing on rebar legs.

      I love the screen--I love all of them--but I would have to say my favorites are the non-flamingo birds in the third picture. Just gorgeous

      Thanks PhilDavidAlexanderMorris, yes I have noticed we have a lot of same taste. I have visited your site a number times. I started collecting the flamingos because I thought they were so tacky, and then they grew on me.

      Thanks ThriftStoreAddict, I agree, I am not a purist any pink bird will do!

      These take me back to my childhood. My mom had flamingos everywhere. She even had them on the bathroom walls and stickies in the tub area. Very nice!

      Nice! Always fun to find a fellow flamingo collector.

      Yay! Flamingos finally have their own category. Much deserved.

      My husband gave my daughter the set, Your photo#1-- after a trip to China about 1970. Identical. So pretty!

      Nothing better than flamingos, I've got some plastic pinkies in my garden pots. :)
