Half Asleep

On QI, a TV quiz show I was watching recently, the question was asked : “Why do Flamingos stand on one leg?”

I was surprised by the answer. I did not know that the Flamingo has the ability to stand on one leg and, the half of the bird with the leg touching the ground remains awake while the other half sleeps. I then got to thinking about the birds I have photographed doing the same thing.
