White-Naped Crane

White-naped cranes live in marshy areas in China, Mongolia, Russia, Korea, and Japan.  They are called white-naped cranes because they have white napes.  The nape is the back of its neck.  One of the things I like about this crane is the cool dark gray arrow on both sides of its neck that points up.

We took this picture a few weeks ago at the International Crane Foundation.
