A Little About Flamingos
Flamingos though traditionally not migratory in nature, resulted in flocking to different parts of the world as the climatic temperatures in cold regions began to become colder. Thus killing their food. Mumbai's marshlands though are perfect for their winter getaway!
The algae in the marshlands are plenty food for these pink beauties. And hence they undertake long flights of journey to make this their temporary home till it starts to rain.
In Mumbai, you can spot two types of Flamingos, the Lesser Flamingos which have a pink hue and are smaller in size and the Greater Flamingos that are whiter with flaming wings and taller too.
They typically reside here from December to May and are always found in flocks. Female Flamingos lay only one egg per year and are usually monogamous.
