China's national bird

Several of the people I encontered remarked that the national bird of China was the construction crane. Which seem to be everywhere in the bigger cities.
Most of the construction seems to involve the building of apartment buildings. Some of the buildings would rival the beauty of luxury buildings in the U.S. the difference is the land is all owned by the government. Leases are sometimes limited to a certain number of years. Making the country a giant time share.
