    Default Traggic end???

    Few months back I had been to the Bhandup Pumping station along with a colleague. Expecting to spot few flamingos or waders we moved along the water body but later came across this remains of a flamingo's beak. No idea if it was hacked to death by humans, predator or did it die of some natural causes. At Bhigwan there was a trend of killing the flamingos and consuming it as a delicacy, until the local conservationists started educating them and stopped the killing. Hope the same isnt happening at Bhandup Pumping station or its neighboring areas.

    We couldnt find any other parts of the remains apart from the beak. There were loads of feathers lying around but those were all along the bank of the water body, may be due to the shedding while the waders clean their wings
