About this book

Renowned for their elaborate mating displays, sandhill cranes also use body language to announce intent, establish dominance, show arousal, preserve the nest territory and bond male and female pairs. This beautifully photographed product, Sandhill Crane Display Dictionary – the result of years of field research by Christy and George Happ – provides a handy pocket dictionary to the meanings of their complicated displays.
