Pink flamingos return to Punta Sur Ecotourism Park of Cozumel

The Punta Sur Ecotourism Park of Cozumel has had its first arrival of pink flamingos this season. Before the arrival of the winter season, the Punta Sur Ecotourism Park registered the presence of the first flock of pink flamingos in the X’tacún lagoon, birds that have become another tourist attraction.

Their arrival is an indicator of the good state of conservation and balance of the ecosystem in the Protected Natural Area. More and more flamingos are arriving at the lagoon as these birds, emblematic of the Yucatecan Peninsula, find a safe place to shelter and feed during the season.

Although these birds are generally winter residents, there is also a record that some remain for long periods of time in the different wetlands of Punta Sur, among which are the Chunchacab lagoon, Colombia lagoon and in areas close to the Punta Celarain lighthouse.

Among the flamingos that have arrived in other years, scientists have detected the presence of ringed specimens that come from the northern part of the Yucatan Peninsula.
