The Ostrich is the largest bird in the world.

It can't fly, but it can run faster than any other bird,
and about twice as fast as a human, at 43 miles per hour!

The ostrich egg is the largest egg of any living bird,
about 10 times bigger than a chicken's egg.

Sometimes if an ostrich is frightened, it will put it's head low to the ground,
so that from far away it just looks like a large pile bush instead of a big bird!
