The head colour of the Sandhill crane is quiet impressive. But I found capturing this in a photo quiet difficult. I took this from all angles, focal lengths plus more. Too close and the bird is lost, too wide and the red contrast is lost. Here is the compromise I ended up with.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/400 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 250, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 400.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi
