Foraging cranes during a stopover in the Diepholzer Moorniederung. This group of 450 cranes stood southwest of Oppenweher Moor, just 20 meters behind a house on the Moordamm. During the spring migration, the cranes are only briefly present in this region and courtship behaviour and rivalry predominate.
