Grey Crowned Cranes dancing
Crowned Cranes
Grey Crowned Cranes dancing. They have red at the top of the white face-patch and a red chin (wattle, or more correctly, gular sac since it can be inflated). The cranes dancing (above, left) are both Grey Crowned species, as is the crane sitting (top right); the other crane (top right) with rouge on its cheeks is a Black Crowned species. The East African subspecies (B. r. gibbericeps), also called the Crested Crane, has more red above the white face patch than the smaller South African subspecies (B.r. regulorum). The related Black Crowned Crane (Balearica pavonina) from West/Central Africa through to Sudan has red on all the lower half on its white face patch but none on the top (see link below).
