A friend of ours called to tell us about some Barn Owls the other day. So we drove over by a barn to see the owls. Much to our surprise we found this emu in a pen by the barn. I have never been so close to an emu. It made a rumbling noise, almost like a purr when we arrived. Then again when we gave it corn to eat.
I was fascinated by her feet. They are reptilian and so big. Her name is Emmy. She was quite tame in that she ate corn from my friend's hand. She had a couple of suitors in the pen with her. Roosters. It was quite a sight seeing this huge bird with two seemingly small roosters.
Happy Animal Wednesday to all.
