Miami MetroZoo (June 1, 2008) Wings of Asia Aviary Sarus Crane (Grus antigone) Saurus cranes mate for life. The bond is so strong, these birds are a symbol of marital fidelity in many Asian cultures. As with many other crane species, the saurus crane performs a courtship dance mainly during the breeding season. They bow and curtsy, opening up their wings and throwing back their head as they utter their trumpeting call. Found in the wetlands of northern India and Indo China, these birds require large, open, well-watered plains or marshes to breed and survive.
