All birds stretch their wings to get the blood flowing and stretch tired muscles. When the world's tallest flying bird does it, the simple activity becomes a spectacular sight! The world is truly its oyster.

I started this blog to primarily share photographs taken during my PhD field work (2008-2010). I have since expanded this to include observations made during my travels to areas with Sarus, and also other crane species. The idea is to showcase the landscapes that cranes live in, to understand that that the homes of only 15 species can have incredible diversity of life and human habits, and to help achieve a better appreciation for areas dominated by humans and human activity.
