Every year, in winter, approximately 50km from Solapur, Maharashtra, millions of migratory rosy starlings fly in from east Europe and central Asia to south Asia. They arrive in August and stay until April. They’re the first migratory birds to arrive in India and the last to leave. Watch the beautiful video below by Raman Kulkarni and Harish Kulkarni.
