The Emu dance
Just before sundown, the male and female emu’s dance and show off before they mate. This can go on for hours.\when the female lays the eggs, the female emu leaves and the male emu stays and hatches the eggs and raise the chicks up until the can live on their own. The Emu always lays and hatches the eggs around water so the eggs do not get too hot.
The two birds are the Emus
The half circle at the bottom of the picture is the sun.
The yellow wiggly circle with the circle dots inside is the water hole
The patch dots are the plants and the trees.
The white wiggly lines are the desert.
