The crane <> Kranich
The crane, also known as the Grey Crane or Eurasian Crane, is a member of the crane family. In Europe, it is largely the only crane species; the distribution area of the Common Crane only begins in the Black Sea region. Cranes inhabit swamps and moorlands in large parts of northern and eastern Europe, but also some areas in northern Asia. They take in both animal and plant food throughout the year. The population has increased significantly in recent decades, so the species is not currently endangered.
