Animal of the Day!
Grey Crowned Crane (Balearica regulorum)
Tumblr media
(Photo by Marco Valentini)
Conservation Status- Endangered
Habitat- Eastern Africa
Size (Weight/Length)- 3.4 kg; 109 cm
Diet- Grasses; Insects; Small amphibians
Cool Facts- The grey crowned crane is an impressive bird to be sure. With a head of stiff, golden feathers and a red throat pouch that can inflate, these cranes are royalty to be sure. Grey crowned cranes mate for life and perform complex dances in the breeding seasons to reaffirm their bonds. Despite being the only crane species to be able to perch in trees thanks to a hind toe, they build their nests on the ground due to the weight of their eggs. Both mom and dad take care of the chicks for up to four months where the chicks separate to start their own families.
Rating- 11/10 (Devoted parents to the end.)

I love these birds so much, and seeing their personalities after getting to work with 7 of them in total was amazing!

Grey Crowned Crane (Balearica regulorum)
taken at the Denver Zoo in Denver, Colorado
status: endangered
Still one of my favorite birds! These tall African birds prowl grasslands and wetlands while foraging for food but still enjoy roosting in trees!

I came across this lovely photo today and decided to draw it because I loved it's character. Turns out it's the national bird of Uganda. I can certainly understand why - it looks so stunning and majestic.

Grue royale - Ses d茅placements sont locaux et saisonniers, dict茅s par l鈥檃bondance de nourriture, la ponte et la pluviom茅trie. En dehors de la saison de reproduction, c鈥檈st un oiseau gr茅gaire et diurne. En revanche, lorsque les femelles ont pondu, elles ne rel芒chent pas leur activit茅 et leur vigilance durant la nuit.
