Excellent. Great detail. Until I saw your flamingo photos I didn't know they had a "serrated" edge on their beaks.

Good shot. They do have quite a beak going on there don't they. We don't see many in upstate NY unless they are plastic ones.

Yes, the serrated edge allows the water to escape while trapping the edible bits while they are feeding.

We have lots of those in the DC area as well. When Steven first started posting his photos of real flamingos I accused them of being false.
