Blue Crane

Anthropoides paradiseus
Range Map

Sometimes called the Stanley Crane, Blue Cranes are popular in zoo displays, but are native to Southern Africa. I remember driving through miles of agricultural grain fields in South Africa and the delight I felt when one of these birds crossed the highway we travelled. They are the national bird for the Republic of South Africa.
