One of Africa's most identifiable bird species the Grey Crowned Crane, is also known as the East African Crowned Crane. They can normally be seen in the wetlands and open grass habitats searching for insects, lizards, frogs, fish and seeds. These birds are easily identifiable by their grey plumage, black and white wings and the unmistakable crown of golden feathers on top of their head.
The beautiful grey crowned crane is sadly on the endangered species list, mainly due to their loss of habitat by human population settlements and pollution of agricultural and wetland areas by pesticides.

Best wishes,
