crane. The sarus crane is the world's tallest flying bird, with the male standing 1.8 metres

tall. Besides India, it is found in Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Australia. The sarus is

believed to live with its partner for life, so people consider this sign of conjugal devotion, a

good omen and welcome the birds when they nest in the paddy fields. The sarus, like other

crane species, performs a magnificent courtship dance. The male and female circle around

each other with wings spread out, bowing and leaping high into the air. Both fiercely guard

the nest when one or two eggs are laid. Today, only around 10,000 Indian sarus cranes
