Flock of migratory birds fly over Chilika Lake

by Dikhyaa Mohanty

Internet users have been mesmerized by a swarm of migrating birds soaring over the Chilika lagoon in Odisha. Susanta Nanda, an employee of the Indian Forest Service, posted the breathtaking image of the birds flying above the lagoon’s waves. The birds are visible hanging above the water body against a backdrop of a brilliant blue sky, and it’s amazing to watch them move with the breeze. Nanda also mentioned that the migratory bird roosting and nesting season had started. Nanda said in a tweet that Chilika lagoon was a haven for “the wandering spirit.”

On Twitter, the video has received more than 5,000 views. The winged visitors captivated the attention of nature enthusiasts. Amazing habitat, someone said. “The soaring birds as a flock are a joy to witness the simple fact they have picked Chilika lagoon as their home,” another person remarked. A third user said, “The wonderful site of Odisha!! Area make it a rare place deserving of preservation by us.” Over 11.42 lakh birds of 190 kinds visited Chilika Lake last year, according to a PTI report. There are 190 species of birds, 111 of which are migratory birds from other nations and 79 of which are native to India.

On the Indian subcontinent, Chilika Lake is the largest migratory duck wintering area, according to the UNESCO website. Especially in the winter, the pear-shaped lagoon is home to some of the largest flocks of migratory birds from various parts of Asia. The birds travel from far-flung regions of Russia, the Kirghiz steppes of Mongolia, the Caspian Sea, Lake Baikal, the Aral Sea, Ladakh, and the Himalayas to the region.
