The Sarus Crane is a large non-migratory crane found in parts of the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and Australia. The tallest of the flying birds, standing at a height of up to 1.8 m (5.9 ft).
The Indian Sarus Crane inhabit open, cultivated, well-watered plains, marshlands and jheels and are well known for their ability to live in association with humans.
After running far inside a cultivated field and then hidding us very close, we could take that picture without frightening them.
