What made me obsessed about the similarity of Ostrich behaviour to human behaviour is this Ancient Arabic poem:

أَسَدٌ عليَّ وفي الحروب نعامة فَتْخَاء تَنْفُرُ من صفير الصافرِ

هـَــلَّا بَرَزْتَ إلى غزالةَ في الوغى أم كان قلبك في جناحَي طائر
Translation:

He's a lion on me but an Ostrich in warfare, like a camel running away from the whistle of nightingale

Would you show yourself for "Ghazala" in war, or was your heart in the wings of a bird?

Short story: The female "Kharejeya" named "Ghazala" faced the brutal Hajjaj bin Yousef in battle and called him for combat 1 to 1, but he coward and rejected her call, leading her to say this poem to his army.

Ninja ostrich? Is that an ostrich that bury its head in the sand while spitting throwing stars out of its ass?

You know what they say; birdbrains of a feather, flock together.
