Baby Rhea Series

This will be a short series of baby rheas from last spring. The male rhea builds the next and the female lays eggs close to it. The male rhea then rolls the eggs into the nest and takes full charge of incubating the eggs and raising the chicks.

This rhea was kind (and brave) enough to build his nest next to the main drive through. He was turning the eggs while I was watching him.

This is how the nest looked the first time I saw it.
