About the Brolga
Also known as: Native Companion, Australian Crane

The Brolga is a species of crane found in Australia and New Guinea. They are also known as Australian Cranes or by their former name: Native Companion.

Brolgas are non-migratory, but make seasonal movements depending on rain levels. Their preferred habitats include freshwater marshes and lagoons, tidal pools, and mangrove swamps. They may also be found in irrigated cultivated farmland.

Brolga pairs mate for life. Bonded pairs perform synchronous trumpeting calls as part of their courtship or pair-bonding each breeding season.
