Here is a family of ostriches. The dark one is a male, and the other two large birds are females. The male mates with all the females in his territory. The females incubate the eggs during the day, and at night, the male takes over incubation while the females go out for food. These chicks are a few weeks old. This photo was taken in Ngorongoro Crater within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.
