Late critter post!

Today Amanda invited Rina and me to join her and the children on a trip to a farm stall/coffee shop outside the nearby town of Clocolan. As we were turning into the property, I spotted a strange-looking bird; Amanda stopped and I photographed it.
Rina said it was an emu
When I showed the photos to Grant and Rudi at home, they agreed it was an emu

An emu is exotic in South Africa and I don't' know it. Now I've actually seen and photographed one! 

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here


  1. Hello Jo, the emu is a cool bird. I have seen them in a zoo. Great shots. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. people are raising emus here in the states and also llamas and ostriches.. not sure why. but i have never seen an emu .. kind of like an ostrich but not as big... a strange new critter for sure

  3. How cool is this? Awesome...great photos Jo.
    Being an avid birder myself, I'm visiting from the linking tool at Eileen's Saturday Critters. Thanks for sharing. If you'd like, you can add your link today at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

  4. So darn cute! My post came in late too, silly work always gets in the way of my blogging!

  5. I have seen Emu in Australia but they are few and far between. Great sighting Jo
