Description  
Cranes are large, long-legged birds which have been located in all of the world's continents apart from Antarctica and South America. Cranes are considered one of the world’s tallest flying birds and they have stream-lined bodies with long necks and rounded wings. Grey cranes typically inhabit small wetland areas or forests as they are highly camouflaged in this environment and this helps to protect them from predators. Cranes are regarded as symbolic in many cultures across the world and they are celebrated for their beauty and magnificent mating displays. Unfortunately the number of cranes has diminished significantly, which is particularly due to their loss of habitat, and they are currently at risk of becoming an endangered species.
