Flamingos appear in far-flung states following hurricane
The tropical birds have been seen as far as Pennsylvania and Ohio
In the wake of Hurricane Idalia, flamingos are showing up in unlikely places—as far-flung as Pennsylvania and Ohio. Biologists believe the tropical birds were probably flying between Cuba and Mexico when high winds sent them off course to a variety of states, including Alabama, Texas, Virginia and the Carolinas.
“This is jaw-dropping how many flamingos have been seen,” Scot Duncan, executive director of Alabama Audubon, told the Washington Post.
