The auspicious crane in SW China's Xizang

Known as "the roof of the world," southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region is deemed the "water tower" of Asia, a climate regulator and gene pool of the planet Earth. It is also one of the regions with the richest biodiversity on earth. 

Since ancient times, the black-necked crane has been deemed as an auspicious bird by local people who call it "fairy crane" or "divine bird".
