What bird is this?

This is at the Central Park Zoo. My daughter wants to do a show and tell of her trip to the zoo and I didn’t catch this one’s name. TIA.

First one looks like a Great Blue Heron.

Definitely not a Great Blue Heron!

White-necked Crane Grus vipio (aka White-naped Crane).

It’s native to Central Asia and is considered threatened.

I figured Colibri would identify it. But even I could tell that was not a Blue Heron.

Thanks, Colibri.

Did anyone else have a Christmas song come to mind when they saw the thread title?

Pretty Good Blue Heron?

Hail, hail the Bird Made Flesh,
the Crane the son of Gruidae
