:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: at the Crane and Pels. Stunning sightings and really beautiful pictures.

:thumbs_up: on the other birds as well.
The bird doesn't sing because it has answers, it sings because it has a song.

Hi Wildtuinman,
Wow! A Grey Crowned Crane. Of all of our feathered friends, this is one that I've always wanted to see in the wild but never have (maybe someday). Great sighting. :thumbs_up:

Thanks everyone,

Yes, I myself was very surprised to see Crowned Crane there, but when I checked SABAP2 data it seems that it is quite a regular occurrence at the Park. :o
