Grey crowned cranes

Grey crowned cranes

With their bright blue eyes and golden Mohawks, crowned cranes must be one of the most striking looking birds in the Luangwa. They are quite shy though and can be difficult to approach. These two were caught up in what seemed to be a mating dance although it is the wrong time of year – they were running around each other, bobbing their heads and jumping into the air and so didn’t take much notice of me. Unfortunately it then began to pour with rain and so I had to leave them to it. We have had a huge amount of rain recently which is a little late for this time of year…
