Red-crowned cranes, Muravyovsky Park, Muravyovka
Live webcam with a view of the nest of Japanese cranes is installed in the aviary of Muravyov Park in the Amur Region. The owners of the nest, a pair of Japanese cranes, are named Oka and Kivili. Since 2017, their chicks have been released into nature every year to replenish the wild population of Japanese cranes.
The Japanese crane is the rarest of the Amur cranes and the second smallest in the world. Its world population is only about 2,800-3,000 individuals, and 1,500 of them constantly inhabit the Japanese islands, without flying to the continent.
The rest of the population is continental, nesting almost exclusively in the Amur basin and flying off to winter in South China and the Korean Peninsula. The largest, massive and rare species of cranes living on the territory of Russia: the weight of an individual reaches 11 kg, growth is up to 160 cm, wingspan is up to 2.5 meters.
The combination of white and black feathers, slender neck and legs and natural ability to move gracefully make this bird one of the most beautiful in the world. A distinctive feature is the presence of a red «cap» on the head and a dark «mask» free from plumage in the front of the head.
The video surveillance project for Japanese cranes is being implemented jointly with the regional public ecological organization AmurSoES, the Muravyevsky Natural Park for Sustainable Nature Management and the Amur branch of WWF Russia.
Live webcam in the enclosure with Japanese cranes in the village of Muravyovka, Amur Region, works around the clock in real time.
