A crowned crane is a bird of the Balearica genus:
- Red-crowned crane or Japanese Crane (Grus japonensis)
Some authorities use the term "crowned crane" to refer generally to the genus Balearica. Likewise, the International Ornithological Committee, who standardize common species names, have also used the group name "crowned crane" in the common names of the extant species of the Balearica genus.
