I’m going to be at the main academic conference in my field the rest of this week, so posting here on the site might be on the slow-side for a couple of days. But in the meantime, I’ll leave you with two stories of the birded type:
“Emu on the loose in the east,” or really, in the “east” down south in North Carolina. Nothing too unusual; just a classic story of an emu having escaped and being mistaken by an ostrich.
Second, there’s this from a web site about neighborhood news in New York City, “$20 Emu Eggs Fly off Shelves at Farmer’s Market.” Essentially, emu eggs are novelty items, a giant egg in a very tough dark green shell. What’s it taste like? Well, judging from the video, a “good egg.”
