Blue Crane

South Africa's national bird - now an endangered species because of loss of habitat. There is a breeding pair near here, but although we usually see only the pair and their offspring, every year a huge flock of perhaps 40 birds foregathers here for a day or two, inexplicably. OK, I cheated with this shot, which was taken in Singapore's Bird Park, where I could get a lot closer than I do here.
