Flamingos build nests just like any other bird. They make nests out of mud, straw, rocks, and feathers. Mounds have even been found to be over a foot tall. Flamingos build these large mounds for their young to protect them from high water and heat.
Usually flamingos mate in the water. The female will lower her head and the male will jump on her back while the female spreads her wings.
Flamingos dont always breed each year. Sometimes they can breed up to two times in one year.
Usually when flamingos reach about six years old, they begin to breed.
