A flamingo that has been living in a pond in Camuy for more than five year has reached puberty and is ready to reproduce. This flamingo is in perfect health conditions to build a nest and lay an egg. Although the egg will not be able to hatch, due to the lack of male flamingos in the area, this would be the first reproductive attempt for these birds in Puerto Rico for more than 150 years.
