    Default Pink Flamingos, or Pink Ibis? In Louisiana?

    Hi. I was driving from Lafayette, Louisiana north to Shreeveport last week Thursday evening(3/22), when i saw 2 pink flamingos fly overhead..i have been trying to find out if this is likely, but it's been a little difficult..i have read about a pair of flamingos being sighted, but i can't tell how old the posting is..someone suggested i saw Pink Ibis, but when i looked them up, they did not look like the long legged birds i saw in flight..any thoughts?

    Roseate Spoonbill is by far the most likely long legged pink bird in Louisiana.
