See the red-headed cranes in the dry season

In the dry season from December to May of the lunar calendar (January to June) is the season for watching the dance of the red-headed crane in Tram Chim National Park. Because unlike many other birds in the region, the red-headed crane only feeds on the ground so in the flooding season in Dong Thap Muoi, they have to go elsewhere to feed. Therefore, only the red-headed cranes can be seen in the dry season, easily visible especially from February to May every year.
