Today, Flamingos city, is an island in the middle of Kutch, known to the world over as one of the biggest breeding grounds of the greater flamingos, is strewn with bodies of hundreds of flamingo chicks.

The right mix of sweet brackish water in the Rann is crucial for the proliferation of planktons and algae that the flamingos feed on.
