These beautiful birds stay in stagnant salty waters, where they feed. They breed in Kutch, Gujarat.

Yes,it was very thrilling! We are indeed lucky to have them every winter here in Mumbai,but its' the first time I went out with a group to see them. They are seen in the salty backwaters of Sewree and Mahul and you have to go first in a motorboat and later in a rowboat to get close to them. Thanks,Carol and Sparkle for the comments.
