Crane

Grey crowned crane Congratulations card with the bird and speech bubble with text ‘Congratulations – Go Strut Your Stuff’ you lovely thing!

The magnificence of the crane makes it perfect to tell the recipient the truth. And the truth is that the recipient has merited being congratulated. In other words, it is time for them to step out proudly and strut their stuff.

What a bird. It stands a metre tall with red and white face markings and feathers in a range of colours from pink through to violet and blue. Specifically, the plumage of the body of the grey crowned crane is mainly grey. The wings are predominantly white, but within that overall colour there is a range of colours. When they stand still you can sometimes see a large patch of white, depending on how the wing feathers lie against the body.

And at the top there is a very distinctive patch of black. Topping the whoe thing off the crown of the bird is covered in stiff golden feathers. Meanwhile, the sides of the bird’s face are white and then at the front the bird has a bright red throat patch.

Cranes Have An Inflatable Throat Patch

Cranes can inflate the throat patch, and surprise surprise they do so when in a state of sexual excitement trying to engage with a mate.

It is monogamous and pairs for life after a courtship dance that involves twirling and curtseying. Therefore we can say that all that beauty is reserved for one mate. That’s the way to do it!

A word about where it comes from, because you surely must be wondering. It is native to the savannah of Sub-Saharan Africa. You can picture it out on the plains and in the shallow marshes, a beautiful and delicate bird.
