Today's Bird: The Greater Rhea

Today's bird is the Greater Rhea!  Greater Rheas kind of look like ostriches or emus.  They're almost five feet tall and weigh more than 40 pounds.  Pretty serious bird.  Also, they can't fly.  Which was particularly sad for this bird who lived near the Santa Cruz Airport.  Ahh, the irony.  I took this picture in Santa Cruz, Bolivia on June 24, 2012.
