An 8 day
trail in the remote areas of Ladakh only to photograph the Black-necked
Crane proved to be a great plan. After sighting them for days from a
distance, one session where I stalked them as close as 30 feet away was
a mesmerising experience.
Black-necked Crane is a scarce and threatened resident species. It
breeds in small numbers in the wetlands of Ladakh and winters in
agricultural land in Bhutan and elsewhere. Sexes alike.
