Two African Crowned Cranes at the Safari Park, graceful as a pair of Flamingos. This gentle bird is the national bird of Uganda and has a loud call during flight.
They eat insects, reptiles and small mammals on the savanna, laying in dry open habitats.
The gray African Crowned Crane nests in wetter habitats, like freshwater marshes and wet grasslands.
I spotted these two a far, chatting away (bird talk) as they scurried across the savanna!
The Black African Crowned Cranes (Balearica pavonina) root in trees due to their long hind toes allowing them to grasp branches.
