POWERED BY MERLIN

Larger, pure white, rare cousin of the Sandhill Crane. One of the tallest birds in North America, striking and unmistakable: brilliant white overall with black wingtips and a red crown and mustache. Male and female similar; juvenile stained cinnamon-brown and lacks red on face. Only a couple hundred individuals left in the wild, but population slowly increasing.
