Crowned Crane

Crowned Crane image. The only crane species found in Tanzania, the Crowned Crane is common in wet areas of the Serengeti through much of the year. During the wet season, cranes can be seen in saturated areas of open grassland, sometimes in large groups. Unlike other cranes, Crowned Cranes live in a pair bond all year, and will perform mating dances and mutual preening outside the normal breeding season.
