(Common) Crane (Grus grus)

A migratory species that over-winters in Portugal, mostly on the Plains of the Alentejo. Common Cranes arrive in November and depart at the end of February, feeding in the meantime on new grass shoots and Holme oak acorns. Call is a noisy honking and numbers can on occasion swell into thousands at particular sites.
