Red-crowned Cranes are large cranes that live across parts of Asia. They are also known as Japanese Cranes.
Red-crowned Cranes are named for the red patch of bare skin they have at the crown, which becomes a brighter red during breeding season. Their plumage is white with black secondary wing feathers. When standing, these long wing feathers make it look like the crane has a black tail, when in fact the tail is white.
