Carambolim Lake supports a large population of herbiverous birds. The male Pintail Ducks remain segregated in locations rich in tall emergent Oryza in shallow margins of the lake, while the females feed on leaves and flowers of nymphea in the central region of hte Lake. the coots, which prefer Hydrilla and if availabel also consume macronvertebrates brought to surface by the activity of other diving birds. the Moorhen is knows to derive the benefits of food brought to surface by agitative feeding habits of the Coots.
Diving movements of the Pintails and lesser whistling teals dislodge the benthic macroinvertebrates thereby making them available to birds such as Bronze and Pheasant Tailed Jacanas and Coots
The ten most abundant birds at Carambolim Lake are
Pintal, Lesser Whistling Teal, Cattle Egret, Pond Heron, Purple Moorhen, Red-rumped Swallow, Little Egret, Bronzewinged Jacana, Pheasant Tailed Jacana, Coot.
I visited the carambolim lake recently and here are some of the birds I found there
