What Do They Eat?
Wetlands habitat offers a bounty
of crane food. These long-legged birds wade in shallow wetlands
to catch frogs and small critters. They walk through mud, reeds and
grass to nibble plant
berries. They poke around for acorns, snails,
rodents in nearby forests. Cranes will eat snakes, small birds — and
almost anything they can get their beaks on.
