ANIMAL FACTS - Storks and Cranes
The Brolga is quite famous for its elaborate courtship displays. They step forwards on the long, stilt legs with wings half-open and shaking, often Bowing and bobbing their heads.
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.
