QuickBird spots flamingos off Nalabana Island, Chilika Lake, India
Abstract:High-resolution QuickBird data on 3 January 2005 identified flamingo congregation areas around Nalaban Island, a protected area for conservation of migratory birds in Chilika Lake, India. The bright pixels against the dark water bodies represented bird signatures observed in the northwestern rim of Nalabana Island. Some of the locations provided relative bright areas, indicating the disturbance created by the bird congregating in the area and flashing of the water created during their flying.
