Look at the size of that bird!

I recently visited the Hamilton Zoo. I did not expect much, but was pleasantly surprised by the size of the grounds, and the range of animals on display. It really is an asset to Hamilton.
The zoo has many African animals, including rhinos, giraffes, various buck and of course, lots of ostriches. In the part of South Africa where I am from, ostriches abound, but they appear to be rather scarcer here in New Zealand!
These boys were fascinated by this bird and spent quite some time admiring it.
Compared to the size of the little bird on yesterday's photo, the ostrich on today's photo is huge!
