The sarus crane is a large non-migratory crane found in parts of the Indian Subcontinent. The tallest of the flying birds, standing at a height of up to 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in). Like other cranes, they form long-lasting pair-bonds and maintain territories within which they perform territorial and courtship displays that include loud trumpeting, leaps and dance-like movements. In India they are considered symbols of marital fidelity, believed to mate for life and pine the loss of their mates even to the point of starving to death. Sarus crane numbers have declined greatly in the last century and it has been estimated that the current population is a tenth or less (perhaps 2.5%) of the numbers that existed in the 1850s. The video was shot at the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, Rajasthan.
