West African Crowned Crane (balearica pavonina pavonina) by Steve Wilson - need to up my game on Flickr.West African crowned cranes roost in trees, which is unusual for cranes. They gather in large flocks during the non-breeding season and roost in open trees overnight. Conservation West African crowned cranes are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the world’s oldest and largest global environmental network. Numbers of West African crowned cranes are in decline. The species is under pressure because of habitat loss and destruction, as well as over-collection for the pet trade. Much of the wetlands and grasslands of their native equatorial West Africa have been converted to pasture and agricultural land, and drought has also ravaged the land in recent decades.
