Toi-!kwiten Light offers some interesting Ostrich information

 

It is not true that the ostrich buries its head in the sand when in danger.

It will rather choose to run away but when flight is not a choice, it tries to hide by slumping to the ground with its head and neck pressed to the sand, and stays low and very still.

Perhaps it is the blending of its neck and head colours to the sand that gave rise to the "head in the sand" story.
