ANIMAL FACTS - Storks and Cranes

Brolgas feed on tubers of sedges, which they dig up from underground with their bills. They also take grain, mollusks and insects.

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.
