A bird in the crane family; it has also been given the name “Australian Crane”. It is well known for its intricate mating dance. The performance begins with a bird picking up some grass and tossing it into the air before catching it in its bill. The bird then jumps a metre into the air with outstretched wings and continues by stretching its neck, bowing, strutting around, calling and bobbing its head up and down. Sometimes just one brolga dances for its mate; often they dance in pairs; and sometimes a whole group of about a dozen dance together, lining up roughly opposite each other before they start. Brolgas are widespread and often abundant in north and north-east Australia, but are as far south as Victoria. Their diet is mainly bulbs and sedge. They are non-migratory but move to different areas in response to seasonal rains and drying.
