The Brolga is one of two types of cranes found in Australia. The other is the Sarus Crane and is very similar to the Brolga. The Brolga is also known as the 'Australian Crane'.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

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.
