  1. Only the two mtDNA loci were treated as coding; the mtDNA were further partitioned by codon in the divergence time estimation analyses. Substitution models for each locus were estimated using MEGA 5.2 and the best available model was used in MEGA 5.2 and MrBayes 3.2.1 for the phylogenetic analyses and in BEAST 1.8.0 for the divergence time estimation analyses. ADAMTS10 and HMGB2 were only used in phylogenetic analysis testing flamingo intraspecific variation.
