Whooping Crane



About Whooping Crane
Huge, white wading bird with long, sharply pointed bill and long legs, crown is red; forehead, area between bill and eye, and mustache stripe black. Latter with red tip; bare red skin on face around horn-colored bill.

This beautiful bird breeds in the spring. Both the male and female build the nest of wetland plants on the ground. Most of the time the nests are surrounded by water. The nest is 5 feet (1.5m) across and 1.5 feet (0.5m) above the water. The eggs are buff to olive-buff eggs, marked with brown, reddish, and pale purplish spots, incubated by both the male and female for 28-31 days.

This is the tallest and largest North American bird. The Whooping Crane is a beautiful bird, both on the ground and in the air. It flies with strong beats of great wings that span 7 feet (2.1m) or more.

The Whooping Crane feeds by probing gently with its long spike of a bill in the bottom mud of shallow wetlands, but it finds most of its food on land.

The Whooping Crane gets it name from the loud trumpeting call it makes.
