Has the legs of a mini ostrich for sure.

You have to watch where you walk or you might step on them when they are so young. They simply fold up their legs and drop and stay motionless. they play like they are not alive. They also blend into the grass so well you miss them one foot away if you are not vigilant.

EEEEK! That is so precious. I just adore these birds - I love the way they do their cartoon-run on those long legs.
