Papa was a flightless bird

Why ostriches on Father’s Day? Because male ostriches are more involved in the care and rearing of their young than many other wild animals. At night, the expectant ostrich dad sits on the eggs in the nest, his black plumage camouflaging him from predators. When the chicks hatch, papa ostrich teaches them how to forage for food and is their primary protector. Way to go, ostrich dad! We hope at least one of those baby ostriches remembers to call you today.
