Ostriches--The Superpower Field Guide

Ostriches--The Superpower Field Guide by Rachel Poliquin, illustrated by Nicholas Frith is an engaging addition to this series.  Even an ordinary ostrich is pretty extraordinary. Did you know they have the biggest eyeballs of any animal or bird on land? They don’t fly, so weigh north of 300 pounds and can be 9 feet tall! More than half that weight is in the thighs, powering the ostrich at top speeds. The section about the various uses of those gorgeous wings was our favorite. Highly recommended. (Non-Fiction)
