Emus, Flinders Ranges

The Emu is the largest bird native to Australia and the second-largest extant bird in the world by height, after the ostrich, which is its relative.
Emus are common over most of Australia, although they avoid heavily populated areas, dense forest and arid areas. They can travel great distances to find food, feeding on a variety of plants and insects.
