The pink birds found food and comfortable vegetation in a place near to farmer properties.
PROGRESO — The mangrove area of the old narrow road that was used during the time of the railroad and that connected this port with the towns of Chicxulub Pueblo and Conkal has become a nesting site for flamingos.
A little more than a kilometer south of the Progreso-Chicxulub trail is the nesting area of flamingos, wading birds that usually inhabit the mangrove area of Uaymitún, but which have begun to congregate in the mangrove swamps near Progreso where they have found food, explained the farmer Remigio Cuytún.
To get to the area where the flamingos are located, we travel along the road that leads to the old municipal dump. The dense mangrove growing in that area is a result of the institutional program for the protection, conservation, restoration and reforestation of the mangrove that has been carryied out since October 2014 by the Ninth Naval Zone through its Port Oceanographic Research Station.
Flamingos flock to less than 20 meters from the narrow old road, from where they are easily seen, and they occupy an area of about 500 meters. According to the farmer Remigio Cuytún ,for several years, these birds were not seen in this area.
The farmer commented that about two months ago the flamingos began to settle in that area of mangroves, but few people observe them, mostly owners of plots located in the lands.
What is an important issue of concern to everybody is that the entrance to the road that leads to the old garbage dump is no longer blocked and has no surveillance, so now people have free access and they could start throwing garbage again to the mangrove.
