Flamingo flocking refers to a form of lawn greeting. It involves the placement of a "flock" of plastic pink flamingoes in someone's yard. The flocking might be ordered by someone for placement in a friend or family member's yard, as a practical joke, or to wish someone a happy birthday or celebrate some other special occasion. And of course, anyone can order a flocking for their own yard.
Although flocks of flamingoes are commonly used, other creatures may be used, as well as temporary signs to help convey the desired message to the recipients. For example, a stork with appropriate signage can be used to announce the birth of a baby.
A number of companies in locations throughout the country are involved in delivering the flamingo flocking service.
