K suggested the bird had gone through a slick of paint on the surface of the sea. Listeners to the show felt, though, that it was the consumption of fish food. Canthaxanthin and Astaxanthin are the 'pinkifiers' fed to caged salmon. But where was the bird getting it from?
I think it's a commie subversive myself!! :)
Your pink seagull photo brought up the memory of the pink seagull that I photographed on a Florida beach in March of 2002. As with your photo, there was only one colorful bird in the group, so the food source idea doesn't seem to answer the question of the single unique bird. I would be willing to share my photo if you are interested.
