Flamingos are one of the most fascinating birds on the planet. These lovely birds are a treat for birdwatchers all across the world, with their delicate necks and thin legs.
A flock of pink flamingos swimming through a small water body is shown in a viral video on social media. Point Calimere Wild Life and Bird Santuary in Kodiakarai, Tamil Nadu, provided the gorgeous scene.
Supriya Sahu, the Tamil Nadu Principal Secretary for Environment, Climate Change, and Forests, tweeted the video.
‘Point Calimere (Kodiakarai) Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary in Tamil Nadu is abuzz with hundreds of migrating birds #TNForest,’ the IAS officer captioned her post.
The attractive and skinny birds give a visual delight as they travel along in a line in the short movie. The pink-coloured birds appear to be migrating and reaching a new location by traversing shallow waterways.
The viral video was released on December 25th and has had about 9,000 views since then.
A lot of people also commented on the video, complimenting the IAS officer for sharing the migrating bird footage.
Others commented that they had went to the nature reserve, which is a great area with a lighthouse and seahorse, and that it was fantastic to see so many flamingos together.
According to News18, the Point Calimere woodland area was designated as a wildlife refuge in 1967. Over the years, the sanctuary’s lagoons have attracted a variety of bird species. Wild boars, horses, and blackbucks also live in the refuge.
Thousands of migratory flamingos arrived to Mumbai last year, during a period when the country was under lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak.
