Taken at Cheyenne Zoo in Colorado Springs on 9/07.

Editor's Note: I'm not sure what these birds are. Can anyone identify these lovely creatures?
Southern African Crowned Crane -- very endangered.
I hope this Zoo has a breeding program, or else they are contributing to the demise of this lovely species.
Having experience on the California Condor project, I know how difficult it can be to determine sex in some birds.
Go to the 3rd picture down the page; I believe they are the same kind of birds:
