White-Naped Crane ia a large and gracefully built bird with long and droopy wing feathers. Adults are pearl-gray with a red face and a white stripe running from the crown down along the back of the neck. Juveniles are similar but are tinged with brown across their upper parts. Less tolerant of dry fields than Hooded and Common Cranes and often found in smaller groups.
