White-Naped Crane

White-Naped Crane

Seen in Zurich. A rather striking face this one has.

The White-Naped Crane breeds in northeastern Mongolia, northeastern China, and adjacent areas of southeastern Russia. Different groups of the birds migrate to winter near the Yangtze River, the DMZ in Korea and on Kyūshū in Japan. They also reach Kazakhstan and Taiwan.

About 4,900 – 5,400 individuals remain in the wild.

The White-Naped Crane is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
