Grey but yet so colourful!

11 December 2011

The grey crowned crane is an absolutely stunning bird to observe. A non-migratory species and therefore present throughout the year, it seems to love this part of the Serengeti. And that makes us lucky enough to actually spot this bird quite regularly.

Beautiful in its appearance, the real thing is to observe its breeding habits.; then the crested cranes display vivid dancing, bowing and jumping - all added with a booming sound that it produces by inflating it red gular sack.

Patient as we are, we haven't been that lucky yet! But we'll keep you posted as we continue to observe!
