Two male Flamingos adopt a chick in England

How often do we hear about same-sex birds raising young together?

From BBC.com:
A pair of male flamingos have become foster parents after adopting an abandoned chick in Gloucestershire.

Carlos and Fernando had tried to start their own family by stealing eggs from other flamingos at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust in Slimbridge.

But their sitting and hatching skills impressed staff so much, that when a nest was abandoned last week, they were chosen to "adopt" the chick.

The new flamingo family is said to be doing well.

Does Jerry Falwell know about this!

Oh, wait, he's dead now.

In that case, rock on Carlos and Fernando!
