The plumage of the Aamingo is of a deep and lively rose colour, when the bird has attained its full feather—that is, at about four years of age. The young ones are white, with that slight faint blush which prevails in the white rose, and in some varieties of the camellia japonica. In the intermediate stages the wings only are crimson ; but in all the states of the plumage the outer pinions are marked with black. Their glowing livery, contrasted with the brilliant green and azure of the waters, makes a scene of most gorgeous beauty; and if the garzota, the large, delicate, white egret, is among them, the contrast is still more striking and voluptuous.
