I thought about discontinuing this challenge earlier when I realized that I haven’t been updating it as I should, but timing is everything. I plan to see this challenge to the end no matter how long it may take me.
These birds got rhythm in their feet and wings!
🐦 The 15 species of cranes are placed in four genera. The Japanese cranes (pic above) are my absolute favorite!
🐦 Cranes are large birds with long legs and long elegant necks. When they fly, their necks are often outstretched.

🐦 The cranberry got its name from Dutch and German settlers. They called it “crane berry” because of the plant’s crane-like stem and flower and the berry grew in marshy areas where cranes hang out.
🐦 Cranes dance to attract a partner, and they mate for life.
Other birds with the letter ‘C’ I considered were the elegant Courser, Cockatoo, and the Cormorant. Now, go watch these majestic birds dance. It’s the best thing you’re going to see today, if not for the week.
