Sarus Crane - Breeding

Sarus Crane By Jayesh Shah - Ahmedabad
The species though not persecuted much in many parts of India is exhibiting declining numbers due to habitat loss. The Sarus Crane symbol of eternal fidelity breeds in between marshy grasslands and local inundations on bunds that are natural creation by assimilation of sand and other material. The breeding period is during the monsoon.

This photograph is taken by Mr. Jayesh Shah from Ahmadabad who is an avid bird photographer and birder. He has compiled lot of material on birds especially those from Gujarat.
