I like that emu.

We had an ostrich on TV in Australia for many a year.

(an emu appeared on an episode of DS9, maybe someone can tell me what episode it was, and what Odo called the bird, as I have forgotten).

A Gunji jackdaw was a large bird.

A resident of Deep Space 9 dreamt up a pair of Gunji jackdaws when everybody's dreams (and nightmares) became the truth in mid-2369 when the station's inhabitants were studied by an advanced alien species.

Odo had to herd the two jackdaws safely through the promenade. (DS9: "If Wishes Were Horses")

I wonder why I didn't do that. I don't think I even attempted a search. I posted the question two hours before I went out so I had plenty of time.
