Makhachkala, January 9, 2017. More than a dozen species of pink flamingos are staying for this winter in Samursky forest reserve for the first time, the press-service of Dagestan State Nature Reserve reports. The flock lives on a fishpond and the nearby lagoon on the coast of the Caspian Sea.

The birds have been discovered on December 10. Then, according to the foresters of the reserve, about 30 flamingos made a stop near the ponds. Most of the birds continued their way to the south, and a small flock consisted of 13 birds preferred to stay for the winter in Dagestan. All the birds are young and do not have the shade of pink on the wings, that characterize adults.

As the ornithologists note, the birds have stayed in Dagestan, due to climate warming.

“Warming happens regularly against the background of global warming. This effect occurs during the last years. That’s why, the bird has stayed for the winter at the lakes.”- the senior researcher at Dagestan Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Yevgeny Vilkov said.

Perhaps, the next year, there will be more birds in the winter. It should be noted that the Samur Reserve is located in the southern part of Russia, on the border with Azerbaijan.

The specialists of Dagestan State Nature Reserve stressed that the flamingo is a rare protected species listed in the Red Book of Russia. This bird was also included in CITES applications, the Bonn and Berne Conventions and other international agreements on the protection of migratory birds. Wintering birds are extremely rare in Dagestan and this flock of pink flamingos has been observed for the first time.

Besides, a rare species of leopards were seen in Dagestan a year ago. In Tlyaratinsky nature reserve on the border with Georgia, local huntsmen recognized a West Asian leopard. It is the largest species of these animals. In addition to the Caucasus, it lives in Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Iran.
