As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

Escaped emu turns motorists' heads running on Israel roadway

HERZLIYA, Israel (AP) — Israeli traffic this weekend was really for the birds.
In the central Israeli town of Herzliya near Tel Aviv, an escaped emu ran through traffic Sunday on a main road between cars in the rain. Local authorities say the bird escaped from a private farm.
Passer-by Iliya Zelser filmed the bird's run. He says the experience made him feel like he was in a cartoon.
Zelser says he expected to hear the "beep beep" of the cartoon Road Runner.
