Now where does the flaming go? Two flamingos who made a wrong turn during migration are rescued and end up in SIBERIA – 4,350 km from their destination

  • Inexplicably, both the winter and spring flew northwards for the tropical birds.
  • After leaving Kazakhstan, the flamingos moved to warmer temperatures. 
  • The birds ended up in Siberia despite likely trying to reach Saudi Arabia or Egypt.
  • Both birds were in poor condition when they were found. They were taken care of by oil workers. 

Two wayward flamingos have been rescued at locations deep in cold Siberia after taking wrong turns as they migrated and ending up 4,350 miles way.

Sporyshevskoye, in the subarctic Yamalo–Nenets autonomous area, was the first to show a confused sense of direction.

Denis Islamov said, “It was freezing. It was obviously emaciated.”

“It stood, but then, perhaps scared, it sat down on the snow and hid under its wing.

The latter arrival in Siberia (pictured) was found 1,160 miles to the east of the first in Yakutia, the world's coldest permanently-populated region

The trips that the flamingos made is unexplained and they were lucky to be found by workers in the region which sees some of the coldest temperatures on the planet

The flamingos’ trips are unexplainable and workers in the region that sees the coldest temperatures on Earth were able to find them.

“I took my jacket off, wrapped it up and took it with me.”

Although the bird was likely to fly from Kazakhstan to winter in Saudi Arabia or Egypt, it flew north instead for unknown reasons.

The temperature at the time it was saved was around minus 7C.

A first shivering bird was found 45 miles from remote Sporyshevskoye oil field, Siberia after inexplicably flying north instead of south for the winter

The bird was shivering when it was found in the Siberian cold but is now 'rather active' after being fed vegetables and seaweed to build his strength

After inexplicably flying north for the winter, a first shivering bird was discovered 45 miles away from remote Sporyshevskoye Oil Field, Siberia.

The second lost flamingo was discovered 1,160 miles to its east on Monday in Yakutia, the world’s coldest permanent populated region.

It was emaciated and shivering, and it was near another Russian energy installation, Chayandinskoye.

Anna Litvinova, oil production director, said that the bird was saved by Sultan Magomedov, a worker who realized it was a visitor from a tropical environment.

The temperature was luckily unseasonably mild when the birds were found but the climate was far colder than what the flamingo was expecting in Saudi Arabia or Egypt

Although it was unseasonably warm when the birds were found, the climate was significantly colder than that which the flamingo was expecting to find in Egypt or Saudi Arabia.

The temperature was unseasonably mild at minus 5C. However, it was too cold for the flamingo that is over 4,000 miles away from its destination.

Anna said that it was weak.

Gazprom Neft Zpolyarye’s ecologist examined the bird and found signs of frostbite.

“But after a few minutes the flamingo came back to its senses. It drinks water, bathes, is active, and can be seen drinking water.

“We fed him vegetables, fish, and today gave him an egg with pollock.

“The bird eats little-by-little.”

The second exotic bird was found at the Chayandinskoye gas field (pictured) in Siberia, around 4000 miles away from where it had expected to find itself

The second exotic bird was found at Siberia’s Chayandinskoye oil field (pictured), approximately 4000 miles from where it had expected it to be.

“The flamingo responded to the naming of Grisha, so we gave him the name Grisha, even though we don’t know his gender.

Both cases show that the energy saviours seek out experts at faraway Zoos to help the animals.

They cannot release birds into the wild when temperatures drop.
