LHASA, June 10, (Xinhua) -- The black-necked crane, a species under first-class state protection in China, mainly inhabits plateau meadows and marshes at an altitude of 2,500 to 5,000 meters.

Black-necked crane couples are breeding babies in wetlands at an altitude of about 4,700 meters in Xainza County of Nagqu City in southwest China's Xizang Autonomous Region. Every year around the time of June, pairs of black-necked cranes migrate to Xainza County to hatch eggs on grass piers surrounded by water.
