The instead of the identity of the closest relatives of the flamingos is a controversial issue to some extent. Has proposed a variety of birds and their closest relatives, on a wide variety of evidence. To reflect the uncertainty on this issue, they are placed in the overall regime of their flamingos.Traditionally, had considered the Ciconiiformes long legs, and perhaps collect paraphyletic and relatives closer Flamingos "and included the family in the system. And usually considered the ibises and spoonbills Threskiornithidae of the closest relatives within this system. Previous studies of genetic, such as those by Sibley, Charles and colleagues, also supported this relationship.and considered the relationship to the waterfowl as well, , especially if parasitized flamingos and waterfowl by lice, feather from Anaticola sex, which is found on the otherwise exclusively on ducks and geese.

 

Other scientists proposed birds flamingos and waders most relevant and pillars of avocets, Recurvirostridae [citation needed]. used presbyornithids strange to argue for a close relationship between flamingos, waterfowl, and waders,but now known to be aquatic birds unequivocally with the conformation derived in strange ways parallel waders and studies of molecular flamingos.Recent have suggested a relationship with grebes,, while the evidence strongly supports the morphological also a relationship between flamingos and grebes. have at least morphological characteristics in eleven joint, which not found on other birds.
 
Has been a lot of these properties that have been identified previously on the flamingos, but not on the grebes can be considered as fossil Palaelodids evolutionarily and ecologically intermediate between flamingos and grebes.The clade diver, Flamengo, has been proposed Mirandornithes taxon ("miracle bird" because of the extreme and abetting apomorphies). Instead, it can be placed in a single command, with Phoenocopteriformes take priority.
