Grey Crowned Crane by KeldBach Grey Crowned Crane by KeldBach
The East African Crowned Crane (Balearica regulorum gibbericeps), or Crested Crane, is an amazing bird to watch. Captured at the Copenhagen Zoo. From Wiki

There are two subspecies. The East African B. r. gibbericeps (Crested Crane) occurs from eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo through Uganda, of which it is the national bird, and Kenya to eastern South Africa. It has a larger area of bare red facial skin above the white patch than the smaller nominate species, B. r. regulorum (South African Crowned Crane), which breeds from Angola south to South Africa.
