Ostrich - Forst Eibenstein

The Ostrich is an impressive bird that calls the open plains and desert areas of Namibia home. They are the largest flightless birds in the world, characterized by their long necks, legs, and powerful muscular bodies. The plumage of male ostriches is mostly black, while females exhibit a more gray-brown coloration. Male ostriches also have striking white wing feathers, which are displayed during courtship displays. Ostriches are swift runners and can reach speeds of up to 70 kilometers per hour. Their diet primarily consists of plant material such as grass, leaves, seeds, and occasionally insects.
