{FD} Escaped flamingo found 13 years later

It’s incredibly rare to catch a glimpse of an African flamingo on the Texas coast, but if you do, it’s definitely Flamingo No. 492. The conspicuous pink bird has been on the run from the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita, Kansas, since escaping 13 years ago. Sightings of No. 492 have been rare, but the fugitive flamingo was spotted last month in Lavaca Bay, Texas, about halfway between Houston and Corpus Christi, The New York Times reported.
