Here is a wonderful poem on the ‘ Golden Crowned Crane’ by 8 year old Arkendu Banerjee from Kolkata.
Don’t miss the creative write up by kids and fun facts by Kaadoo, makers of wildlife-based, table top games and sponsors of the Children’s Day contest prizes.
A bird from the family of crane,
With a grey coloured crown.
We will call it a grey crowned crane,
With a speciality itself in its name.
A bird with grey crown,
Not found in the Indian town.
It’s the national bird of Uganda,
Not less famous than Anaconda.
Displays its dance in the rains,
It is omnivores and eats insects and grains.
And makes a honking sound,
When it moves around.
Hey, Sara here again. Did you enjoy that simple and adorable write up? Now, as promised, some cool facts about Forest Eagle Owl, shared by Kaadoo, prepared in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature. (WWF)
