062. ‘ENGAGE LANDING GEAR’. Grey Crowned Cranes. Zikomo Lodge Area, South Luangwa National Park, Zambia
A flock of grey crowned cranes are about to touch down on some wetland. Here they will spend time looking for food. They are omnivores, eating insects, plants, seeds, frogs and small fish. They will stamp their feet while walking, hoping to flush out some edible creature. At night they will fly up into the trees to rest and sleep.
