Have some summertime fun with fishy fashion. Jewelry made with vintage fishing lures are fun to wear and always an attention getter. These three are in my Beachcombers Cove shop on Etsy. Keep checking the shop; more are coming.
(This one's an actual fishing lure made with a handmade lampwork fish bead and feathers from my African Grey parrot. Its been tested and it caught a nice Redfish in Corpus Christi Bay.)

It takes about 3 years for a flamingo chick to develop its full coloration. Flamingos will not breed until they get their full pink coloration.
The color of flamingos depends on their diet. The more they eat plankton and shrimp, the pinker they get. If flamingos eat mainly fish, they will be light pink to grey.

Hatchlings will be released Tuesday, June 2 at 6:30 am at Malaquite Beach at the Padre Island National Seashore. There will also be releases later in June, in July and August. To check the release information, call 361-949-7163, the Hatchling Hotline.
So here are the rules:
Call that number after 4 am. If they changed plans, it will say so on the recording. If not, then the release is on at 6:30 am. A Park Ranger will meet you at Malaquite Visitors Center at 6:15 and take you to the release on the beach. Do not wear white clothing, use a flash on your camera or bring food (it will attract the gulls.) If thunder storms are around, the public will not be allowed to attend.
