AMONG THE FIRST to be flocked was the home of Cleveland Mayor Scott Rusher.

Orange pumpkins aren’t the only things on display in local neighborhoods — flocks of plastic pink flamingos are also mysteriously finding their way to homes and businesses in the Cleveland area.

 Taking responsibility for the ‘flocking’ of flamingos is the Cleveland Partners in Education (CPIE) organization, which is using the pink birds as a fund raiser.

 “We like to suggest that as birds started to migrate south some got confused on directions and found their way to Cleveland,” joked April Imler, school librarian and president of CPIE.

 You can join the fun by sending a flock of flamingos to friends, church members, neighbors, family, etc. Unsuspecting loved ones will walk out their front door and see pink flocking flamingos all over their yard. Flocks will land early in the morning and rest for 12-14 hours in each location before migrating to their new location.

 The cost is: Flock of 24 Flamingos - $30. If you have already been flocked and would like to protect yourself from future migrations, you can purchase anti-flocking insurance for $5.

 To order a flocking call 918-949-5190 or email Aprilimler@clevelandtigers.com

 All funds raised help teachers and students at Cleveland Public Schools
