emu chick

Emu chick Dromaius novaehollandiae IMG 0779 - It is the male emu who has the task of raising and tending to his chicks, but when he was momentarily distracted this young bird wandered off alone. The family, who had made the Currawinya National Park in outback Queensland their home, arrived, early in the morning, to quench their thirst at the muddy Paroo River that is the artery that brings life to this remote outback region and to its great diversity of wildlife.
