Sarus Cranes

Sarus Cranes: Chambal Sarus Crane “Reserve”, India, March 2023 — The Crane “reserve” is not any kind of reserve that we Americans would recognize. It has no official status and very few specific protections. It is recognized by the courts of India as being significant, but that is about it. Unlike most cranes, who are long distance migrants, the Sarus is largely resident in the areas of India where it nests…using mainly wetlands and farm fields. They are the tallest flying birds.
