“What’s the meaning of all this preening?”

 
Without doubt one of the most ornate and memorable birds in the Serengeti National Park, a Grey Crowned Crane has to work for the image. 

 
 Preening is an essential part of the morning routine, re-aligning feathers and coating them with an oily secretion from a gland near the base of the tail helps keep things subtle and shiny.

 
Turn into the wind to blow dry and add a little "bounce" to the coiffure.
