IN FINE FEATHER BACK THEN: Dozens of pink flamingos stand in a yard in Brook Park, Ohio. They were set up by the Original Flamingo Surprise, a party service, to celebrate the resident's 49th birthday. The original version of the plastic flamingo may be singing its swan song after being alternately celebrated as a tribute to one of nature's most graceful creatures and derided as the epitome of American kitsch. Union Products Inc. stopped producing flamingos and other lawn ornaments in June, and it's going out of business Wednesday.
