Cranes are wetland birds which have adapted to live in grassland and agricultural fields. The crane has a loud shrill call which can carry over long distances, and is used during the breeding season and when migrating.
Sarus cranes mate for life. The male and female build a platform nest on the ground and share incubation of 2 eggs for between 30-36 days.
