Sure, I was surprised and lucky to see cranes near road.

They (since not hunted by peoples directly) not affraid cars, but keeping yet some respect distance from peoples. In Austria and most areas in central Europe, cranes dissapeared since year 1600!

Is this true?

Now scientists count about 200 000 birds and count of cranes slowly keep increase.
