Handbook of Bird Biology by Cornell Laboratory of OrnithologyEmu landscape version The name 'emu' is not an Aboriginal word. It may have been derived from an Arabic word for large bird and later adopted by early Portuguese explorers and applied to cassowaries in eastern Indonesia. The term was then transferred to the Emu by early European explorers to Australia. Description: The Emu is Australia's tallest native bird, reaching between 1. Adult Emus are covered with shaggy grey-brown feathers except for the neck and head, which are largely naked and bluish-black. The wings are greatly reduced, but the legs are long and powerful.

About this book
The second edition has been out of print for years and even used copies have been very difficult to come by. It includes over full color photographs, a first for any general Ornithology textbook. But what a rich resource for those of us who are interested in delving more deeply into those subjects! A special new feature of the third edition is a wealth of online material that complements and supplements the Handbook. Very impressed! I compliment the Cornell team for their quality product. I can fully understand why it took so long to put it all together but the wait was certainly worth it!
