Flamingoes at Lake Rosa (aka Lake Windsor) in the Inagua National Park, Great Inagua, The Bahamas

Lake Rosa, also known as Lake Windsor, is the largest lake in The Islands of The Bahamas, stretching 12 miles (19 km) and occupying nearly one-quarter of the interior of Great Inagua. This hyper saline interior wetland is a vast reserve and home to the largest flock of Caribbean flamingos in the Western Hemisphere. These beautiful rare birds, national bird of The Bahamas, mate and nest in the spring and lay only one egg each year. Their brilliant plumage is stunning, with a dramatic splash of black under rose colored wings. A diet consisting of brine shrimp helps maintain their dazzling pink color.

Many other kinds of sea and shore birds can be found here, including a rare Bahamian parrot or two, roseate spoonbills, herons, egrets, pelicans, ducks, and, surprisingly, hummingbirds. You can also see there the 60 reservoirs where salt is naturally made from sea water, sunshine, and breeze.
