Hi everyone

I'm just going through my trip notes from the long weekend and I have a
query. I know there is a remnant population of Emu south of Brooms Head, in
or near Yuraygir National Park. Do these birds move out of the park?

I had a glimpse of what may have been 4 or 5 Emus in a paddock close to the
Corindi Beach turnoff. Yes - I can imagine what you're all saying - how can
ANYONE confuse an Emu with ANYTHING?!! Well, I didn't get a great look at
them, and I was driving on one of the last remaining sections of single
carriageway between Sydney and Brisbane. My initial response was EMU! But
the birds were obscured on a quick second and third glance and I didn't
dare risk any more looks. It wasn't the sort of place I wanted to pull

Has anyone else seen these birds? Are they wild, are they on a farm, or are
they kangaroos?!
