The Common crane – (Grus grus) or Eurasian crane is a medium sized crane of the family Gruidae. It is a very widespread summer Breeder across N and Temperate Eurasia, and has complex migratory flyways to multiple wintering areas further south, in SE Asia, India, The Middle East, Africa and even S Spain. In the AWB Region it is a summer Breeder in many parts of Turkey but particularly in the east and into Armenia. In Turkey there are many small areas where it is both a winter visitor and resident. Elsewhere there are non-Breeding areas in Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Sudan and the N coastal areas of the Maghreb states.
