RE: "African crane" sounds

It's most likely the East African Crested Crane, _Balearica regulorum_,
which resides in the African Savannah exhibit at the San Francisco Zoo, the
zoo where _Jurassic Park_ sound designer Gary Rydstrom and his crew recorded
a number of animal sounds.  See this bird at
00.  For more information on Rydstrom's _Jurassic Park_ sound effects, see

Gary grew up in my home town, and I knew him back when we were film students
at USC.  He is currently developing and directing animated films for Pixar.

Subject: "African crane" sounds

Hey! I have yet another question... you know the sound raptors made in the
Jurassic Park movies when calling each other? The filmmakers said hey had
used the sound of an "African crane". Does anyone, by any chance, know what
species they were refering to?? 
I know, not paleontology, but I thought I'd ask just in case there is a
crane or bird expert around...
