    Avestruz de 8 días, Territorio Chubut

    Although the text on the picture says that the cute bird is an ostrich (avestruz) but is really a Ñandú (Rhea). Rheas are  a bit smaller than ostrichs and they have one finger more. In the photo is clearly visible that the bird has three frontal fingers instead the two of the ostrichs. This photo was taken at Chubut Province.

    The postcard maybe taken and printed between 1920 and 1923.

    Dimensions 14×9
