September 13 2015 1:00 am Flamingos are highly strung and neurotic Let an aircraft fly too low over the colony and the birds will abandon nesting for the season Top News “Where the heck are the damn birds” I muttered stepping uneasily on the squelchy mud-cracked earth and scanning the wide horizon Sambhar Lake bed stretched vast and empty in all directions What was galling was that the birds obviously had been here: the dark crazy-paved ground was strewn with tiny pink feathers that were being tugged this way and that by the brisk breeze Then a pink shimmer on the horizon caught my eye: they were there — in their hundreds if not thousands — the flamingos The flamingos can really mess up your head They wear these short pink ballerina tutus and stand straight tall and effete with all the regal hauteur of a brigadier-general on the parade ground on pencil-slim legs that go on forever Their slender necks are attractively curved their eyes glare at you and they have beaks that look like boomerangs They stalk about in muddy gook so ferociously saline it’ll peel the skin clean off your shins (their feet are webbed their legs scaly and impervious) They subsist on (amongst other delights) that number one hit health food: spirulina Of the six species found in the world we have two in India — the greater (around 145 cm tall) and lesser (90 cm): the largest and smallest of the clan Oh yes and they eat with their beaks held upside down They’re generally found around saline mud flats and estuaries sometimes surprisingly close to built-up areas in cities like Delhi and Mumbai Of the two the greater flamingo breeds in India on the Great Rann of Kutch beginning in September Many years ago the late Dr Salim Ali was the first to discover the famous “Flamingo City” on the Rann that hosts nearly half a million birds A 30 cm high volcano-shaped mound of mud serves as the nest and usually a single chalky white egg is laid The baby when hatched immediately recognises its parents’ voices and is fed a rich blood-red algae soup It’s a boarding-school bird really because it leaves home in 10 or 12 days with other youngsters marching across the flats behind adult “supervisors” who lead them to crèches located on islands where they can find their own food Gangs of off-white youngsters sometimes run amok and cause havoc in the nesting colony upsetting incubating moms no end The lesser and greater flamingo have sorted out their dietary preferences perfectly so that they don’t compete directly with each other The lesser flamingo which floats its almost black bill upside down (like the hull of a boat) just beneath the surface of the water is happy scooping up the blue-green spirulina algae rich in caretenoids which give it its crimson-pink colours The greater flamingo delves deeper scooping up minute crustaceans micro-organisms and tiny fish Their bills act like filters the tongue working like a piston sucking in and expelling water (20 times a second) the lamellae (or filtration plates) netting the food matter Before settling down of course hearts have to be won and the breeding displays of flamingos are no less astonishing A battalion of dudes and dudettes will stand to attention necks extended to the maximum march across the plain turning their heads right and left and flicking open and shut their wings smartly (this is actually called the “wing salute”) Then they’ll preen and bow and open their wings again to show off their striking colours A group of birds may suddenly lower their heads (into the shape of a shepherd’s crock) and run through the battalion gabbling This is called hooking The lesser flamingo does it slightly differently: a group of a dozen or so birds will line up the head of one resting on the back of the one ahead of it and the entire group will charge through the battalion (like American footballers — cross-dressed as ballerinas though) More and more birds join the group as they charge through the colony wagging their heads from side to side A wacko and crazy way of checking each other out and finding the right one for you Well it works because flamingo marriages last forever The trouble with flamingos is that they’re extremely highly strung and sensitive neurotic even Let an adjutant or black-necked stork pace the edge of a potential nesting colony let a hyena or jackal lope towards them let an aircraft fly too low over the colony and the birds will abandon nesting en masse for the season leaving eggs to bake in the heat and chicks to starve Even in their gabbling thousands they need peace of mind for their babies In this day and age it’s a marvel that they are able to breed at all To encourage them what have we gone and done and are planning to do in the Great Rann of Kutch — the only place in the country where the greater flamingo breeds We have strung live high-tension electric cables across their flight paths sizzling alive hundreds of birds and have given the go-ahead for a major road-building project right through the Kutch Wildlife Sanctuary so that tourist buses can clatter up and down and blare their klaxons as they pass through It’s like inviting a drunken barati brass band into an ICCU and letting them go berserk And instead of tiny pink feathers being tugged this way and that by the breeze there’ll be thousands of empty gutka and chips packets being blown across the vast empty flats of the Rann (What a) way to go Ranjit Lal is an author environmentalist and birdwatcher For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top

species are delaying their emergence amid warming winters a new study has found The study covers 12 years of observations at a West Greenland field site near Russell Glacier a dynamic front protruding from the massive inland ice sheet that covers most of the island Watch all our videos from Express Technology Each year from early May to late June researchers looked daily for the first signs of growth in plots enclosing individual plant species Led by the University of California Davis in the US researchers found that warming winters and springs associated with declining arctic sea ice cover created a mixture of speed demons slowpokes and those in between One sedge species now springs out a full 26 days earlier than it did a decade ago This was the greatest increase in the timing of emergence the researchers have seen on record in the Arctic “When we started studying this I never would have imagined we’d be talking about a 26-day per decade rate of advance” said Eric Post a polar ecologist from the UC Davis “That’s almost an entire growing season That’s an eye-opening rate of change” said Post who has been studying the Arctic for 27 years But other species are in no rush despite the Arctic’s short growing season Onset of growth for the gray willow has not budged and a dwarf birch species is beginning its growth only about five days earlier per decade While how early a plant emerges from its winter slumber depends on the species the study demonstrates that the Arctic landscape is changing rapidly Such changes carry implications for the ecological structure of the region for years to come “The Arctic is really dynamic and it’s changing in a direction that won’t be recognizable as the same Arctic to those of us who have been working there for decades” Post said Previous studies have shown how such changes are affecting caribou in the region Caribou come to the study site each year during calving season to take advantage of the nutritious plants needed to recover from winter and provide for their newborns However as the emergence of plant species in spring has shifted the caribou internal clock driven by seasonal changes in day length has not kept up The food is still there but the pickings are not as nutritious as they were at first growth As a result fewer calves are born and more die early in years when spring plant growth outpaces the caribou calving season “That’s one example of the consequences of this for consumer species like caribou who have a limited window to build up resources before going into the next winter” Post said The study
