Flamingos in Bombay by Priyamvada Mangal

"Mumbai and Navi Mumbai have been home to flamingos for years. The Greater and Lesser flamingos migrate to the warmer climate of summers in Mumbai from Saurashtra and Rann of Kutch. 95% of the flamingos that migrate to Mumbai are lesser flamingos. They feed on the red-algae in water and shrimps, which is how they get their pink colour. The Talawe wetlands in Navi Mumbai is home to these agile and beautiful creatures. People come in large numbers to see these flamingos and experience this surreal view."
