The chick currently has soft brown plumage across the body but within 65 days will take on the slate grey feathers of an adult with the distinctive red spot on the head. At this point the chick will also become independent.

Visitors to Highland Wildlife Park will be able to view the Eurasian crane flock behind the visitor centre.
