|The Common Cranes at Wilcze village, near Gryfino town.|
The Common Crane (Grus grus) it is a large, stately bird and a medium-sized crane at 100-130 cm (40-52 in) long, with a 180-240 cm (71-96 in) wingspan and a weight of 4.5-6 kg (10-13.2 lbs). It is grey with a white facial streak and a bunch of black wing plumes. Adults have a red crown patch. It has a loud trumpeting call, given in flight and display. It has a dancing display, leaping with wings uplifted. It breeds in wetlands in northern parts of Europe and Asia. The global population is in the region of 210,000-250,000, with the vast majority nest-ing in Russia and Scandinavia. In Great Britain the Common Crane became extinct in the 17th century, but a tiny population now breeds again in the Norfolk Broads and is slowly increas-ing. It is a long distance migrant wintering in Africa (south to Morocco and Ethiopia), south-ern Europe, and southern Asia (south to northern Pakistan and eastern China). Migrating flocks fly in a V formation.

A perfect example of over sharpening a bad picture to acquire something closer to what was intended, resulting in excessive noise. The POV and general balance is very good. Note is informative ... thank you for sharing that.
