BLACK CROWNED CRANES

This bird comes from very distant lands, the grasslands and marshes of Africa (South of the Sahara). They nest close to sources of water, and so you will naturally find them near water in Cigoland. As you visit the aviaries or ride a jalopy, you will see some magnificently coloured and majestic specimens. With a bit of luck, you may even hear their cry, which can easily be mistaken for the sound of a trumpet.
