Shoots, here in Carp a friend of mine back in the 80's that lived back on Shepard;s Mesa had a neighbor that had peacocks and hens that got out of their pens and populated the hills behind his place.
Occasionally he would go back there with a 22 and pick off a couple of peahens out of a tree and we'd clean 'em and wrap the breast meat in foil and cook underground in an emu.
Farkn' unbelievably good eating, just like pheasant.

That's probably what happened to the flamingos. I hear they taste like a cross between Spotted Owls and Pelican.

Mike, my sighting, and on multiple occasions was back in 77-79. I am 100% positive what I saw. I would hop on the city bus or ride my bike to that that lagoon almost every weekend and either fish it, or just screw around. Then go screw around the mall or catch a movie at the “walk ins” or go hike around the eucalyptus forest. Best times of my life. Life before video games. Ha

May not change your mind, but here is a link to the subject. I'm not the only one who has seen or heard about the Flamingo's from the "70's."
