This gray crowned crane was much more reserved than the rest and kept his distance. I don’t know if he was a more submissive bird and kept his distance from the rest of the birds, or if he just didn’t want to get closer to me. He did keep an eye on me and what was going on with the other birds however. I thought he was particularly beautiful when he would turn his back on me and then would turn his head to look back at me.
