Birding Diaries - Flamingos in Singara Chennai


I made a quick trip to Chennai aka Madras last month on the inaugural run of the double decker train between Chennai and Bangalore and here is what I found. On a dull morning, we saw several flamingos in the marshes of Pallikarnai. This is a first for me as I have not seen flamingos before in Madras.

There are about two lakh flamingos left in the country. And Flamingos are more common at Pulicat Lake, around 60km north of Chennai. The Pics you have shared are very nice. Seems like you are professional photographer.

They are beautiful. A friend of mine told me about Pallikaranai marsh and it's a great place for bird-watching! Never believed it then. Your pics are too good!

These famous pink birds can be found in warm, watery regions on many continents. They favor environments like estuaries and saline or alkaline lakes. Considering their appearance, flamingos are surprisingly fluid swimmers, but really thrive on the extensive mud flats where they breed and feed.

Wow ! Lovely captures of flamingos. Good to know that they arrive at pallikaranai marsh :) But sadly I haven't been there yet being in Chennai. I hope that I will get a chance in near future. Thanks for sharing Lakshmi :)

Didn't have a clue about this wonderful place in Chennai, despite of my four year stay in the city. Really useful information with the excellent pictures.
