Abstract Annual recruitment of Sarus Cranes was estimated from 1997 to 2002, by means of observed proportions of juveniles in non-breeding flocks on the Atherton Tableland. Survey conditions were considered free of confounding influences as to provide the first accurate estimate of recruitment for the Australian population of this species. Mean recruitment over the 6-year period was 6.58%, with no significant variation between years. Comparison with other crane populations indicates that the… 

Sympatric cranes in northern Australia: abundance, breeding success, habitat preference and diet

ABSTRACT Sympatric breeding of Sarus Cranes (Antigone antigone) and Brolga (A. rubicunda) occurs only in northern Queensland, Australia but factors contributing to this unique sympatry are unknown.

First observations of Australian Sarus Crane Antigone antigone gillae pairs attending three young and the incidence of three-egg clutches in the Brolga A. rubicunda

Clutch-size in gruine cranes is consistently two. Clutches of three eggs are very rare, and records of adults supporting three young even more so. We report two observations from the Atherton

Numbers, distribution and behaviour of Australian Sarus Cranes Antigone antigone gillae and Brolgas A. rubicunda at wintering roosts on the Atherton Tablelands, far north Queensland, Australia

The Atherton Tablelands in far north Queensland is the only currently known concentrated flocking area for Australian Sarus Cranes Antigone antigone gillae . Brolgas A. rubicunda also flock there in

The sarolga: conservation implications of genetic and visual evidence for hybridization between the brolga Antigone rubicunda and the Australian sarus crane Antigone antigone gillae

TLDR
It is suggested that genetic analysis of shed feathers could potentially offer a cost-effective means to provide ongoing monitoring of this migration between the Gulf Plains, the principal breeding area for sarus cranes, and major non-breeding locations on the Atherton Tablelands.

The sarolga: conservation implications of genetic and visual evidence for hybridization between the brolga Antigone rubicunda and the Australian sarus crane

TLDR
It is suggested that genetic analysis of shed feathers could potentially offer a cost-effective means to provide ongoing monitoring of this migration of sarus crane populations, and provides the first definitive evidence that both brolgas and sarus cranes migrate between the Gulf Plains and major non-breeding locations on the Atherton Tablelands.

First reproductive success and individual productivity in sandhill cranes

TLDR
The age at which sandhill cranes in Florida began successfully reproducing was determined to see if differences in reproductive performance occurred between the behaviorally distinct migratory greater, and the non-migratory Florida (G.c. pratensis) subspecies.

Recruitment in Rocky Mountain greater sandhill cranes and comparison with other crane populations

TLDR
Recruitment, survival estimates, and count data suggest that the RMP is stable at 20,000-21,500 or declining slightly and cannot sustain increased harvest, particularly in hunted populations.

Age Ratios of Sandhill Cranes

Age ratios of sandhill cranes (Grus canadensis) at Last Mountain Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada, during fall migration were determined by observations of cranes on their roosts, feeding in fields, or

Distribution and Abundance of Sandhill Cranes in Mexico

TLDR
The authors' surveys indicated that >50,000 cranes winter in Mexico, and it is estimated that about 10% of the RMP wintered in Mexico in Chihuahua and Durango, and Gulf Coast cranes are probably Canadians and lessers from the MCP, Gulf Coast Subpopulation.

Is the Sarus Crane under threat in Australia

It is now thirty years since the Sarus Crane was first added to the Australian list. Very little information has been published on the species since then, and, in the view of the author, some of the

The cranes are among the most ancient and distinctive families of birds on earth, yet they are among the world's most threatened groups of birds. This action plan describes the many different sorts

MITOCHONDRIAL DNA SEQUENCE VARIATION AMONG THE SUBSPECIES OF SARUS CRANE ( GRUS ANTIGONE )

TLDR
A minimum-length network for the Sarus Crane haplotypes reveals at least one instance of direct ancestry and one hard polytomy, but shows no phylogeographic partitioning of haplotypes among subspecies and Estimated sequence divergence times, neutral coalescent imes, and data on the Quaternary geology of Australasia suggest hat Sarus Cranes colonized Australia during the late Pleistocene.
