Genus ANTHROPOIDES

The smallest Indian Crane, the Demoiselle, forms the type of a well-marked genus, having the bill and legs shorter in proportion than in Grus ; the head feathered throughout, with, on each side, from behind the ear-coverts, a white plume or aigrette of feathers with dissociated webs. The feathers of the lower fore neck lanceolate and elongate, projecting in front of the breast. Tertiary quills much lengthened.
