Black Crowned Crane - The national bird of Nigeria of which the population has plummeted from more than 15,000 birds in the early 1970s to no more than a few individuals today. The Black Crowned Crane is of global conservation concern, is classified as endangered and legally protected. I personally think they are beautiful and when I saw a picture of one I had to paint one. The Black Crowned Crane. Your comments are welcome.

Laura, It is a beautiful bird and it, like our dogs, is being abused, in this case, almost to the point of extinction. Luckily it is now on the protected list.
