來北海道焉可不看丹頂鶴。 鶴見台和鶴居要到11 月?才開,現在只有鶴公園才能看到丹頂鶴。the baby crane is pinkish (it’s in two of the attached photos). It would turn into the pretty adult crane after a year or so.

It was great to see the cranes. It is an easy walk along a path to see all the enclosures. Peek through camera holes make getting good pics easy. Nice place to see these birds.

They show the birds to great effect as they are nurtured and cared for. Great sights of these magnificent cranes. Lots of facilities for education especially children. An unpreposesing site which simply gets on with such important rescue work.

It was cloudy when I visited, so the pics I took turned out good. Most of the enclosures have a 'camera port'. You just rotate the board out of the way, for shots through the fence.
