Lesser Flamingo, Mumbai suburbs.
Every year, more than 100,000 Lesser flamingos (along with a few greater flamingos) migrate to Mumbai from November to May. They inhabit alkaline water bodies and some coastal areas until the onset of the rains.
In the picture is a (small) part of a large group doing a courtship dance where they move together in groups, raise their necks and swing their heads from side to side.
