Red-crowned Crane minds teritory in the damp plain in March or April, and makes the nest which piled up reeds and lays two eggs. A young bird is hatched in about 1 month after making a sitting. It is known that the parent bird that the friend of Crane makes a sitting is about to cry on the egg. It is asked about this cry well even after a young bird is born. It is useful as important communication with a parent and the young bird, and it is said to play an important role for the growth of the young bird.
