Big bird(s)

An emu gives us the evil eye...
Weirdly innocent looking but threatening too...
I've mentioned before that birds are the modern descendants of dinosaurs. Looking at this emu(?) at the Oregon Wildlife Safari, it's not hard to see the connection. It looks menacing.

This guy/ gal was extremely aggressive about plucking food from our van. At one point it lunged forward, startling my wife so badly that she jerked in fear and tossed all the remaining food pellets around the inside of the van.

When I tried to shoo it away, it made this weird grunting noise that made me pause.

On the other hand, the ostrich below was pretty benign by comparison.

An ostrich gives a lookover...
Taking a gander...
