Juvenile Emu

juvenile emu

Juvenile emu lack the distinctive pattern on the head and may be smaller (depending on just how old they are). Emu, like most other birds, cannot suck water up their throat. They need to take a mouthful of water, then raise their head to let the water flow downhill into the stomach. These juveniles, drinking at the runoff from a well, take things easy by sitting back on their heels while they go through the drinking process.
