Blue Cranes are tall, ground dwelling birds that are actually small in comparison to other crane species. Blue Cranes live in dry grassy uplands, valleys and saturated hills. Blue Cranes migrate altitudinally, usually staying at heights of 1,300 to 2,000 m and then moves down to much lower altitudes during the winter. The Blue Cranes are known for living in areas where people aren’t a disturbance. The Blue Cranes are currently living and thriving in transformed agricultural areas in the Western Cape where their populations are not only stable, but are growing. Blue Cranes are also found in other areas, including Hazyview, where their numbers are slowly increasing.
