The whooping crane nests on the ground, usually on a raised area in a marsh.
The species is omnivorous, meaning it eats both plants and animals, including insects, fish, reptiles, crustaceans and reeds in marshes.
The whooping crane stands about 1.5 metres tall, making it the tallest bird in North America.
