Sarus cranes are considered the tallest of flying birds with a standing height of 1.8 m (5.9 feet). Cranes, in general, are known for their dances, often displaying their feathers. Sarus cranes use these dances to attract possible mates, though it has been suggested that the dances can be used to establish territory. These dances are often accompanied by the characteristic loud trumpeting calls too. The grace and the coordination with which they dance is a sight to behold!
