Storks and cranes are long-legged, wading birds, typically found in marsh areas. Storks and cranes feed on fish, reptiles, amphibians, and insects that they catch using their long heavy bills. Storks are unable to make noises like other birds such as parrots, however cranes make a loud trumpeting call and the male and female birds perform dances during mating season.

Fact about Storks and Cranes

The word 'Brolga' is thought to originate from Aboriginal Dreamtime. According to legend, a beautiful young Aboriginal dancer named 'Buralga' rejected the advances of an evil magician, who in turn changed her into a graceful crane, to spend the rest of time dancing across the plains with the swirling willy-willies and the dust devils.
