These birds were feeding at a location at Wilsons Promontory know to us (and probably almost no-one else) as "Icon Field", due to it tendency to hold wildlife icons such as Emus, Wombats and Kangaroos. It is intact an area that was once an airfield. We also stop there on our Prom trips.
The Emu - Dromaius novaehollandiae - is common enough in many areas of Australia. There were once two other species (or maybe races) of Emu in Australia, one in Tasmania and one on Kangaroo Island, but both are now extinct for predictable reasons.
Emus are fast runners and their scientific name means 'New-Holland Racer' - which actually makes sense.
The day after this post 'goes live' I will be heading off to the Northern Territory for just over a week - so I will be well and truely 'off the grid' as far as internet and such like. So, don't get impatient if you dont hear from me for a while. (WBW next week will still be there, courtesy of the 'Schedule' function!)
So, off you go, click the Blue Button and I'll see you when I get back! SM
