Flamingo or Flamingoes
I am forever writing the word flamingoes when talking about the cover, but I am stumped on the correct plural of flamingo. Should it follow the rule of tomato to tomatos or potato to potatoes? According to the dictionary.com either flamingoes or flamingos is acceptable. That relieves my mind a bit, so I can't be wrong either way. What do you think?
This pair is a member of the gorgeous flamingo colony at Homosassa Springs State Park near Homosassa, FL. The gentle manatees are an attraction there too. The park cares for injured gentle giants and returns them to the wild when well. They always have some near the springs for visitors to see. The ranger presents a very informative talk about manatees.
If you get a chance to come to Florida, be sure to take in the many beautiful state parks here. You will be able to enjoy the wildlife, the scenery, and Old Florida. Check out my Inside Florida travel site to discover more about Florida and its parks and camping.
