FLAMINGO BEHAVIOR REPORT My class visited flamingos at our local zoo to observe the behavior of each one and how they interacted with each other. Each person had to observe an individual flamingo. We observed for approximately 15 minutes our flamingos patterns and soon made a pattern sequence, which is a abbreviations of actions containing the order of actions the flamingos made. After making the table my class got into groups of three and started organizing the actions in a more organized and simpler form.

There was a total of 5 actions everyone in my class had to organize. In my group we concluded…show more content…

Almost in every action the flamingo would would do a head dip and it would also do head dips over and over again for a decent amount of time. We also concluded that the action “head rub” was never done by our flamingo. It did every action but leaving head rub. When observing, we seen the flamingo was eating or washing its face most of the time which caused the action head rub to be seen. It was a surprise when our flamingo didn 't do a head rub since every flamingo was doing this action In conclusion, the reason of this project was to see how animals try to communicate without using sound most of the times. Flamingos mostly communicate by spreading wings to show how dominant they are and in some occasions they would squawk to get the females attention. Animals try to do actions to make them stick out and the better they do this action the more attention they get. Since they are in a closure habitat they try more often to show who 's the leader since other males are in the same closure. Every animal needs a fight over dominance and actions help them out. They behave to fit the other animals
