|Celebration Rhea Bird|
|Greater (American) Rhea Bird|
Rhea is a great cheerleader for nanoscapes, and I was intrigued when she told me that there was a Rhea Bird. "Really?" I checked my phone and there it was in a wikipedia listing. It is a three-toed flightless bird native to South America whose feathers are widely used for feather dusters. Identified species are the Greater (American) Rhea Bird and the Lesser (Darwin's) Rhea Bird. As yet unrecognized is the Celebration Rhea Bird, a native of New Orleans.
The two Rhea Birds take their places among nanoscapes' Small Friends.
