Special Birds: Common Cranes

Common Cranes Grus grus breed in the northern countries of eastern Europe, from the Baltic States, through Poland to the Czech Republic. South of that they are seen on spring and autumn migration, especially in eastern Hungary in October when around 100,000 can be present. This photo shows an adult (right) with a young bird (note brown head). Taken by Gabor Kovacs, Hortobagy NP, Hungary.
