A flock of flamingos found a new temporary home this week, and it's not at the zoo.

The flock migrated to Mayor Chris Beutler's front yard. Commercial Investment Properties or CIP put the flamingos in his yard sometime Tuesday. He tells 10/11, he had a hint that the flock may show up in his yard, but he didn't know when it would happen.

The migration is part of a month long breast cancer awareness fundraiser put on by CIP. The flock has migrated to CIP apartment complexes across the city encouraging people to raise $250 for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Once that amount was raised, the flock migrated somewhere else.

Mayor Beutler says this is the flock's last stop before they migrate "south."

He tells 10/11, "There's quite a bunch of them, they're very colorful, they're well behaved, no squawking, no depredations, no negatives of any type, just a nice group of flamingos."

The flamingos will be in the mayor's yard until Oct. 28th.

So far, CIP has raised $720 dollars for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. They hope to raise $1000 by Monday.
