Photographer's Note

This is my second photo from the Ostrich farm.

You see the African Black Ostrich.
Special thanks to Rosemary for an idea.

The Ostrich or Common Ostrich is either one or two species of large flightless birds native to Africa. Some analyses indicate that the Somali Ostrich may be better considered a full species separate from the Common Ostrich, but most taxonomists consider it to be a subspecies.

The ostrich shares the order Struthioniformes with the kiwis, emus, rheas, and cassowaries. It is distinctive in its appearance, with a long neck and legs, and can run at up to about 70 km/h (43 mph)!!!! , the fastest land speed of any bird. (from Wikipedia)
