The Grey Crowned Crane is a really beautiful bird and is, to me, the best looking of the cranes. Male and female have similar colouration.
These elegant birds have an elaborate courtship display. They dance and jump around as well as bow down.
The Grey Crowned Crane breeds in wetland areas. It makes its nest among tall vegetation. The nest is large and up to 5 eggs may be laid.
These birds eat a wide variety of foods including grain, seeds, insects, frogs, snakes and even fish if it can catch them.
