Emu Family

We saw this family of Emus in the Flinders Ranges near Wilpena Pound. I had stopped the car and caravan and entered the scrub with my camera . The chicks can run quite fast even though they have very short legs. I was able to follow them for about 10 mins until my memory card was full.

    Were they the ones we saw up in the Flinders Ranges, or on the Eyre Peninsula?

    You are so lucky to have encountered such a magnificent animal. Their built, color and ostrich looking figure is fascinating. You have really great shots here. Thank you for sharing.

      Except in the emu world, the mum lays the eggs and then disappears…Dad sits on the egg and raises the chicks, while Mum is never seen again.
