An escaped flamingo has been spotted 17 years after it flew away from the Kansas zoo. The flamingo, nicknamed Pink Floyd, was spotted at Rhodes Point, a cape in eastern Calhoun County, Texas. It went on a strip of land in Cox Bay on the Cape, near Port Lavaca. Pink Floyd and another flamingo fled their enclosures after a storm hit their zoo in June 2005.
