follow-up (Feb. 13, 2017): Our Editor-Photographer just discovered this morning that, on some unknown date, the original version of this posting mysteriously disappeared. This is not the kind of flamingo mystery we cherish here at “suns along the Mohawk”, but “operator error” of some sort was certainly the culprit. As a substitute, we are now displaying pages 8 & 9 of “Valentine Flamingos in the Schenectady Stockade: whimsy and mystery at Lawrence Circle” (3rd Edition, 2016), which commemorate the 2011 flamingo visitation to Lawrence, followed by a slideshow of the 2011 flamingo images salvaged from personal archives.
As you can see, 2011 brought a single pair of flamingos, one male and one female, to Lawrence Circle. It was a uniquely romantic Stockade moment.
