The Black-necked Crane is a medium-sized species of crane found in parts of Asia. They have a mostly grey plumage, with its namesake black along the neck and back of the head. The crown is bare red skin and there is a small patch of white feathers behind the eye.
Black-necked Cranes feed on a variety of food items, including earthworms, frogs, and plant roots. They often forage together in small groups, probing the ground for food. During feeding, one bird might act as a sentinel, looking for predators or other dangers as the other birds concentrate on foraging.
