The whooping crane (Grus americana) represents one of the best-known conservation stories in North America and this elegant bird has captured public imagination. Whooping cranes have almost entirely white plumage, with the exception of red and black markings on the face and black tips to the wings, which are only visible when out-stretched. Juveniles are a reddish-cinnamon colour, becoming mottled over time until the full snow-white feathers are achieved by the end of their second summer. These cranes are the tallest birds in North America, and males may reach up to 1.5 metres in height. When flying, the neck is stretched out in front and the thin, black legs trail behind.
