RANGE This Critically Endangered species is now only found in one main population in East Asia, with a 2002), and winters in Fereydoonkenar in Iran (recently c.10 birds [Kanai et al. They are distinctive among the cranes, adults are nearly all snowy white, except for their black primary feathers that are visible in flight and a naked red face, with two breeding populations in the Arctic tundra of western and eastern Russia. Siberian cranes have been observed to have made their annual return to this part of India. Migration stopovers are used by …  In the 19th century, larger numbers of birds were noted to visit India. Cooperate with gas and oil companies in Russia and China to minimize disturbance and habitat degradation. Issued for: Pakistan Post Office is issuing a special postage stamp on Siberian Crane of Rs. Volunteer committees among hunters have been created in Afganistan and Pakistan to share information on crane conservation and extensive poster campaigns and a documentary film have been distributed (Ilyashenko and Mirande 2013). comm. From 1991 to 2010, 139 captive-bred birds were released at breeding grounds (Kunovat River Basin), migration stopovers (south of Tyumen Region and Volga Delta) and wintering grounds in Iran (Shilina et al.  The contexts of several calls have been identified and several of these vary with sex. Habitat The Siberian Crane is the most aquatic member of its family, breeding and wintering in wetlands, and shows a general preference for wide expanses of shallow (up to 30 cm) fresh water with good visibility. 2017). The western subpopulation numbers only a single individual aside from reintroduced birds. In 1995 and 1996 thirteen Siberian cranes (Grus leucogeranus) were fitted with satellite transmitters on the breeding grounds in northeastern Siberia.Eleven of these 13 birds were successfully satellite tracked, and five of these 11 provided complete migratory information from their breeding grounds in Yakutia, Siberia, to their wintering area at Poyang Lake, in China. , Siberian cranes return to the Arctic tundra around the end of April and beginning of May. Alauda 81(4): 269-296. Non-breeding birds, typically those up to three years old, summer in Dauria on the border between Russia, Mongolia (Tseveenmyadag 2005) and China. A set of four national stamps were published in Iran in 2008 to help raise public awareness of the Siberian Crane and the importance of wetland conservation within the country (Faseli 2007), and a documentary on the species focusing on the last returning individual in Iran was broadcast in 2011 (Vuosalo 2013). The central population, which once wintered in Keoladeo National Park,Bharatpur India, is extinct. They also swallow pebbles and grit to aid in crushing food in their crop. They are very diurnal, feeding almost all throughout the day. Only two sightings were reported from the Volga Delta in 2012 (Rusanov et al. 1996). Investigate potential impacts of climate change on Yakutian breeding grounds. Siberian Crane Wetland Project 2. Downloaded from 1996). Their success in breeding may further be hampered by disturbance from reindeer and sometimes dogs that accompany reindeer herders. They were earlier thought to be predominantly fish eating on the basis of the serrated edge to their bill, but later studies suggest that they take animal prey mainly when the vegetation is covered by snow. They can stay here for up to 1.5 to 2 months. If the impacts of these developments prove to be less damaging than is feared, the species may warrant downlisting. Provide technical assistance on wildlife health monitoring and management practices at staging and wintering areas. Every winter, Izumi becomes migration destination for over 10,000 cranes (tsuru) as they make their from Siberia — making it the largest crane migration site in Japan. It winters in the shallows and mudflats of seasonal lakes of the Yangtze Basin (del Hoyo et al. Breeding site It builds a large mound of grass and sedge 50-80 cm in diameter emerging above water 25-60 cm deep (del Hoyo et al. 2017). The eastern populations migrate during winter to China while the western population winters in Iran and formerly, in Bharatpur, India . Cranes of the World by Paul A. Johnsgard (1983) 7. In Mahabharata verse, the name of the place, Shashayāna refers to a resting place. 3.00 value on September 8, 1983 in order to increase public awareness of the plight of this rare and beautiful bird which is facing the threat of extinction. Huanzidong Reservoir, Shenyang Region, may also affect this species. The Siberian Crane has a migration pattern that spans 4000 miles from the Russian Arctic to China, India, Nepal and Iran. Conservation Actions ProposedStrengthen conservation of major wetlands in China that serve as critical migration and wintering habitat for the East Asian population through research, management, and policy activities. The breeding areas in modern times are restricted to two widely disjunct regions. Map of Siberian Crane sightings in Pakistan (extract from Atlas of Key Sites for the Siberian Crane and Other Waterbirds in Western/Central Asia (2010) [PDF 1,210 KB] News Media Watch Migration Map (11 x 17 in) ... Visit the UNEP/GEF Siberian Crane Wetland Project website to view interactive maps of the fall 2008 and spring 2009 migrations and click here to view related background information and education material for students on the migration studies. Comparisons of the DNA sequences of cytochrome-b however suggest that the Siberian crane is basal among the Gruinae and the wattled crane is retained as the sole species in the genus Bugeranus and placed as a sister to the Anthropoides cranes. Population. The male stands guard nearby. Incorporate management of Western/Central Asian Site Network for Siberian Cranes and other Migratory Waterbirds under the broader Central Asia Flyway Initiative for migratory birds and continue support for captive breeding programmes. They are distinctive among the cranes, adults are nearly all snowy white, except for their black primary feathers that are visible in flight and with two breeding populations in the Arctic tundra of western and eastern Russia. It may also breed on brushland interspersed with woods (Cramp and Simmons 1980). In western Siberia there are only around ten of these cranes in the wild. Several types of crane come to Izumi, the most common being the hooded crane. Thus, conserving and protecting the Siberian crane would indeed offer conservation services to many other critical species. Esquisse de l'avifaune de la Sibérie Occidentale: une revue bibliographique. Non-breeding Resting areas and stopovers on migration tend to consist of large, isolated wetlands (del Hoyo et al. 2011). , The Siberian crane was formally described by Peter Simon Pallas in 1773 and given the binomial name Grus leucogeranus. IUCN Red List Status Critically Endangered. This includes: 1) water management at Poyang needs to sustain wetland productivity and ensure that extensive mudflats and shallow water areas are available throughout the winter, 2) strengthen integrated water management at migratory stopover sites in north-east China, guided by on-going monitoring of the condition of these wetlands, to support wetland ecosystems that can support cranes, 3) maintain or improve water quality at key stopover and migration sites to avoid detrimental ecosystem change or direct impacts on crane survival, 4) continue long-term research on the effects of changes in water levels on water plants and water birds at Poyang and at sites in north-east China, and 5) protect and manage additional stopover sites, especially from Liaoning to Jiangxi Provinces, based on further investigation of migratory habitats. As a result of water diversions and climate fluctuations, floods and droughts are increasingly frequent at Poyang. To help protect key wetland sites, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Crane Foundation conducted the UNEP/GEF Siberian Crane Wetland Project from 2003-2009, conceived in 1998, to protect and manage a network of sites across Asia critical to Siberian Cranes and 26 other threatened species (del Hoyo et al. The main autumn migration usually begins towards the end of September (Johnsgard 1983), although birds (thought to be non-breeders [Cramp and Simmons 1980]) have been recorded on passage over the Volga delta as late as October-December (Cramp and Simmons 1980). The Siberian Crane is presently an endangered species. It is a long distance migrant and among the cranes, makes one of the longest migrations. Download FREE Siberian Crane images. Juveniles are feathered on the face and the plumage is dingy brown. In addition, as of 2001, over 9,600 dams had been constructed on the five rivers feeding into Poyang Lake (more are still being constructed).  During breeding season, both the male and female cranes are often seen with mud streaking their feathers. Males are on average larger than females. The main wintering sites were in the middle to lower reaches of the Yangtze river; now almost the entire population winters at or very near Poyang Lake, China. In addi-tion, there have been some unconfirmed Siberian Crane sightings at breeding sites in West Siberia (Markin et al 2007) and regular observations of 2–7 Siberian Cranes during migration stopovers in Naurzum nature reserve in Kazakhstan (Bragin 2003, 2005, After an exceptional (due to flow restrictions caused by dams) flood on the River Zeya, a tributary of the Amur, in 2013, small numbers have been observed at Muraviovka Park in far east Russia during autumn migration (Heim et al. Satellite telemetry was used to track the migration of a flock that wintered in Iran. 1996). The Kaladeo Ghana National Park or the Bharatpur National Park has been declared a world heritage site because the Siberian Crane traverses nearly half of the globe to reach it.  In the resulting rearrangement to create monophyletic genera, the Siberian crane was moved to the resurrected genus Leucogeranus. Although water releases to sustain wetland functions have been negotiated, sustaining these releases over the long term will be important, especially for Momoge. 2002, Shilina 2008) passing through Azerbaijan during migration (E. Sultanov et al. It typically lays two eggs but generally does not fledge more than one chick. Several species of crane migrate to Izumi including Sandhill, white-necked, Siberian, and Demoiselle cranes. Siberian Crane Flyway Coordination 5. Management of water levels to sustain ecosystem function will be critical to the long-term viability of this species (Harris and Zhuang 2010). Siberian Crane autumn migration 2002. Japan’s largest crane migration spot. The iris is yellowish. 1996). The species relies on a network of important wetlands along its migration route, which follows the Yana, Indigirka and Kolyma Rivers through Yakutia before continuing along the Aldan River and tributaries and south into China. , Adults of both genders have a pure white plumage except for the black primaries, alula and primary coverts. The call is very different from the trumpeting of most cranes and is a goose-like high pitched whistling toyoya. IDENTIFICATION Adults – red skin on forehead, face and sides of the head, white plumage with black wingtips, reddish pink legs; juvenile – plumage mix of white and cinnamon-brown feathers, tan head. 2014).The Western/Central Flyway population is divided into Central Asian and Western Asian flocks. Pairs will walk around other pairs to threaten them and drive them away from their territory. 1996). 2012, Wang et al. Recommended citation for factsheets for more than one species: BirdLife International (2020) IUCN Red List for birds. Disturbance from boating activities is also a problem at stopover sites. They maintain feeding territories in winter but may form small and loose flocks, and gather closer at their winter roosts. Hunting in Pakistan and Afghanistan during migration affects them as well. Most eggs are laid in the first week of June when the tundra is snow free. , A molecular phylogenetic study published in 2010 found that the genus Grus, as then defined, was polyphyletic. The expansion of lakes and subsequent habitat modification has been on-going in the breeding grounds of the eastern population since the 1950s (Pshennikov and Germogenov 2008). 2017). Non-breeding During the non-breeding season it feeds mainly on roots, bulbs, tubers (especially of sedges), rhizomes, sprouts and stems of aquatic plants, and sometimes aquatic animals if these are readily available (del Hoyo et al. This Critically Endangered bird is third rarest and the most threatened species of crane in the world. Researchers monitoring breeding sites in the remote Yakutia region incorporated remote sensing given the difficulties monitoring on the ground (Stishov and Bysykatova 2008). 2004), and inhibits recovery. The Siberian crane (Leucogeranus leucogeranus), also known as the Siberian white crane or the snow crane, is a bird of the family Gruidae, the cranes. Issued by Pakistan. Key protected areas where monitoring occurs include Kytalyk, Chaygurgino, and Middle Aldan (Russia), Momoge, Poyang and Dongting (China), and Naurzum (Kazakhstan). The species breeds in Russia and winters in China, Iran, and formerly in India, undertaking a 5,000 km migration … Breeding occurs in territorial pairs at a density estimated in the 1970s to be around one pair per 625 km2 (Johnsgard 1983). The eastern populations winter mainly in the Poyang Lake area in China.  Like most cranes, the Siberian crane inhabits shallow marshlands and wetlands and will often forage in deeper water than other cranes.
