Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources




The grey-crowned crane is common and widespread in open grassland although numbers are likely declining in Tanzania because of the wild bird trade in particular. The upper photo is courtesy of Brad Johnson. The slideshow includes photos of displaying and flying birds, juveniles and chicks. The recording includes the call and sounds during mating. The video was taken in Ngorongoro Crater (7-12).
