Black Crowned Crane

Today we went to the International Crane Foundation.  It is a really cool place with cranes from all around the world.  We took lots of pictures and even some video and you’ll be seeing more cranes here soon.

This is the black crowned crane from Africa.  It was friendly and came right up to the fence to see us.  When it gets nervous, it ruffles up its feathers a little bit.  I like the crown on its head.  Out of all 15 crane species in the world, only 2 of them have that kind of a crown.  The color of its crown is sand tan.
