Photographer's Note

In nature, individuals of this species eat rodents and reptiles. In captivity, they can receive and feed insects
Belonging to the genus Grus, (which is part of the order of gruiformes, the same as trumpeter, saracura, Moorhen, Ruff and stop siriema) crane is the name given to more than a dozen birds. The ones that suit here are the two species of crowned existing: the common or blue (Balearica regulorum), and black (Balearica pavonina). In Brazil, its creation is more associated with zoos. Private farms, however, became more popular after the excessive bureaucracy results in the past imports of the species over the decades of 80 and 90.

From Africa, the crowned-crane is considered sacred in some parts of that continent. In its natural habitat the bird lives in flocks and is found in savannas, especially near rivers, lakes and swamps where wont have to hunt insects and small amphibians.

Monogamous couplet form for life. To attract a female for mating, the male emits sounds while running an elaborate dance, leaping, crouching down and opening the wings. The species is very dedicated to their young, with parents taking turns in the egg hatches and the initial care.
