Happy Valentine’s Day to all you lovebirds out there! Our featured birds today are grey crowned cranes that live in the savannas and marshlands of East and Southern Africa. Both males and females of this species will dance to attract a mate, but the dancing behavior has also been observed outside of mating season, and in juveniles as well as adults. Even two males may pose like this, while they size each other up as competition.
