General Information

The Great Sparrow.

The man-ostrich relationship (as sociologists would say!) goes back at least 5,000 years. The ancient Egyptians of course wore ostrich feathers as decoration. In Ancient Greece ostriches were known, as our older customers brought up on the Classics will be aware, as ‘great sparrows’ – sometimes also as ‘camel sparrows’, a fractionally less improbable simile! While on the subject of antiquity, we should also perhaps mention that it is a myth that the ostrich sticks its head in the sand at the approach of danger. This myth received new life recently when a well-known German football commentator, discussing the poor form of the national team, called for them “not to stick sand in their heads”.
