Eurasian Crane Displays - Trandans & Tranbeteende



Carl Christian Tofte and Jessica Lee Hjort have created a fascinating and altogether lovely guide to the behaviors of Eurasian Cranes on their staging grounds near Pulken, Sweden.

This is an important resource for crane behavioral biologists.
Carl Christian's meticulous and stunning artistry depicts individual postures in the Eurasian Crane dances, See http://grusgrus.tofte-hjort.com/ and look at all the links across the drop-down menu, especially those used in their behavior guide entitled "Trandans & Tranbeteende"
(http://grusgrus.tofte-hjort.com/dans-beteende/introduktion/) and Carl Christian's book (Tranedans) which has been published by Koustrup & Co (www.koustrupco.dk).
Carl and Jessica have provided videos of the cranes interacting on the staging area. See http://grusgrus.tofte-hjort.com/video/videoklipp-1-5/.

Finally, one should follow read Carl Christian's blog http://carlchristiantofte.blogspot.com/.
On April 6, 2015 he was still seeing over 6000 cranes in Pulken.

For handicapped folks like me, whose speak only one language, Google provides approximate translations.

After study at the Danish Design School of the Danish Royal Academy of Arts (afgang 2000), Carl Christian established himself as a skilled wildlife artist. Among his many projects are the illustrations in books on Scandinavian and Bolivian birds.

Jessica holds a BFA from Central St. Martins School of Art & Design in London and an MFA from Konstfack in Stockholm.
