The crane was first discovered in the Sokhondinsky Reserve near Chita. According to the director of the Sokhondinsky Reserve Viktor Yashnov, this is a new, sixth type of cranes.

According to WWF Russia, the crane was spotted while on patrol. According to Anna Malysheva, Deputy Director for Environmental Education of the Sokhondinsky Reserve, to meet such a crane is a real miracle.

Until the end of the 1957th century, there was almost no information about the habitat of this species in Transbaikalia, except for a single meeting in the Darasun region. In XNUMX, the crane was recorded during ornithological observations in the upper part of Argun.

Later, in 1980-1990, information about the Japanese crane also confirmed that this species is very rare in Argun. Its numbers began to increase in the early 2000s, but by 2007, due to the reduction of wetlands, its numbers decreased again.
