PREVIOUS BIRD NEXT BIRD China

The Manchurian Crane, which is also commonly known as the Japanese Crane and Red-crowned Crane, is similar in appearance to the Common Crane, i.e. with black-tipped secondaries and long, drooping tertials, mixed with black plumes, a blackish head and upper-neck, with a red patch on the crown, and a broad white band from the ear-coverts down to the upper neck, but with an overall white plumage rather than grey (fig.).
