Demoiselle Crane, Anthropoides virgo. Demoiselle Cranes are found in Northern Africa and South Asia in Winter and migrate North, over the Himalayan mountains to Central Asia to breed. They will frequent grasslands during the Winter but breed in swampy, marshy areas.
They say you can see the soul through a person's eyes. Do you suppose it holds for animals too? Demoiselle Cranes have those beautiful, lurid reddish eyes with pitch black pupils. Wow. What does that say? Hahahah, probably absolutely nothing. Either way, they're beautiful cranes with the white plume of feathers behind their heads, they look so very aristocratic.
