The crane is one of the largest birds in Europe.


The crane (Grus grus), is a summer inhabitant of Lapland, where he carries out the breeding process, after which he travels to more southern regions such as Spain to spend the winter (a century ago, Spain was also a breeding place). They inhabit humid areas, where they look for their food with their beaks. Their diet is omnivorous, they can feed on fruits and vegetables as well as invertebrates, amphibians or small fish. In northern Europe, their favorite places are the lagoons within the taiga, although in this case, these cranes from Finnish Lapland (near the Käsivarren Natural Park) are in some lagoons in the middle of the birch forests (Betula pubescens ), in the transition between taiga and tundra.


Cranes usually live in wet areas.
