The Chilean flamingo is a large species of flamingo at 110–130 cm. closely related to American flamingo and greater flamingo, with which it was sometimes considered con specific. The species is listed as near threatened by the IUCN.
It breeds in South America from Ecuador and Peru to Chile.
Like all flamingos, it lays a single chalky-white egg on a mud mound.
These flamingos are mainly restricted to salt lagoons and soda lakes but these areas are vulnerable to habitat loss and water pollution.
