male emu with chicks

Male emu, Dromaius novaehollandiae, with chicks IMG 8462 - Emus have some strange characteristics, with one being that it is the male bird who cares for the chicks until they are almost as large as he is. This father, with his brood of newly hatched youngsters camouflaged in striped plumage, was photographed beside a flowering crop of canola in central western NSW, Australia.
