Northern Life is looking for helping solving the mysteries of the flamingos in Fielding Park.

Flamingos aren't native to the Northern Ontario, yet a small flock of the plastic kind has called Fielding Park home for the past few years.  Just how long the flamingos have been there is unknown, and who put them there is another part of the mystery.

The sub-species flamingo-lawnus-plasticas is usually home on a suburban front lawn.  Aside from adding a splash of colour to the landscape, the year-round residents have had little impact on the habitat and seem to have adapted to life in the north.  They wear scarves, presumably to keep warm in the winter.

Anyone with clues to help solve this homegrown mystery of the flock of flamingos in Fielding Park add their comments below.
