GREY CROWNED CRANEBalearica regulorum©Aaron Logan /lightmatter.net
By Request - Which bird has a longer neck Ostrich or Flamingo?
Ostrich. But it depends on your criteria - in proportion to size? Then the longest necked bird species is the crane.
The Grey Crowned Crane is my favorite bird in the crane family. It occurs in dry savannah in Africa south of the Sahara, although it nests in somewhat wetter habitats. Like all cranes, it feeds on insects and other invertebrates, reptiles, small mammals, as well as grass seeds. The Grey Crowned Crane is the national bird of Uganda and features in the country’s flag and coat of arms. Source
