ANIMAL FACTS - Storks and Cranes
The Brolga, featured on the Queensland Coat of Arms since 1977, was officially proclaimed the bird emblem of Queensland in January, 1986.
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.
