Ostrich picture in the home page slideshow was made at Rooster Cogburn Ostrich Farm, north of Tucson, Arizona. There were thirty or more ostriches loose in a very large fenced area. It was easy to get close to the birds, much closer than at a zoo. A lot of tourists were feeding the ostriches and that made it difficult to isolate only the birds. This picture shows the birds' funny interaction.
