    Good footage of ostriches on a farm.

  • Description

    Ostrich Farming.

    Location of events unknown - Australia or United States of America?

    Shot of group of about 30 ostriches; on flat bare land; with fence stretching into distance. Man on horse behind the ostriches rides off to left. Horse-drawn wagon drives through the big birds; with a worker on the back on top of what looks like a big pile of dirt; but he is knocking some of it off with a pitchfork - maybe it's something they like to eat.

    CU DS of ostriches moving about. Man putting giant ostrich eggs into a sack. Shot of ostrich gang all moving to right at a brisk trot; then stopping; a man walks through them. CU one ostrich; with head bent down on its weird long neck as it pecks at something on the ground. It lifts its head up again; then turns toward camera.

    Birds; animals; farming.
