West African Crowned Cranes
These cranes are sociable and live in flocks from 6 to twenty, though gatherings of more than 60 have been recorded. It is sedentary, making no long migrations. It may spend hours standing motionless on one leg. The crowned crane's courtship displays consist of a succession of leaps, dance steps and mock takeoffs accompanied by sonorous, discordant double-trumpet cries.
