Caption: The Greater Sandhill Crane, (Grus canadensis tabida), is a temperate-nesting crane and is the largest sub-species, averaging 4.5 -5 feet tall and 10-14 pounds. It's body plumage is characterized by varying shades of grey. In many areas, wild sandhills preen with iron-rich mud into their feathers, creating a deep rusty brown hue which lasts during spring and summer. Adults have a white cheek patch. In general, male and females are virtually indistinguishable but within a breeding pair, males tend to be larger than females.
