There are at least four types of flamingos found in the world and of these there are also sub-species pertaining to some of them. The Greater Flamingo is the only one seen in North America and is found in the wetlands of Florida. The West Indies have a very similar looking bird known as the Caribbean Flamingo. The Eurasian Flamingo is found in the southern area of the continent that is likely a sub-specie of the Greater Flamingo and is identified by its pink and black bill. The Lesser Flamingo is found in Africa and is identified by its bright red bill but none are native to North America. The Chilean Flamingo is recognized by its white and black bill and lightly coloured pink plumage.
