East African Crowned Crane
When these cranes are looking for food they often stamp their feet to disturb insects in the grasses and ground. They spend 50-75% of their time feeding.
A mated pair of East African crowned cranes will stay together year round. The pair bond is strengthened by the performance of a courtship dance which includes leaps, bows, head-bobbing and wing fluttering. The chicks, who may stay with the parents for up to nine months, often join in the dance.
