Australia Emu
These Birds Don't Chirp!

Emus communicate with deep grunting, booming, and drumming sounds made by an inflatable air sack in the neck. These low-pitched sounds carry long distances over Australia’s scrubby terrain and may be heard from a mile away. If you listen carefully you may hear a female boom or a male grunt. Both sexes hiss when threatened.

Brooding Blokes 

A female emu lays 10 or more eggs during the nesting season-one every 2-3 days. But it’s the male who stays to incubate the eggs and care for the chicks. He doesn’t eat for two months while sitting on his brood, and only stands occasionally to turn the eggs. After hatching the chicks stay with their father for a year or more.
