Re: Giant birds

The closest living relatives of phorusracids are the 2 species of seriema
(_Cariama cristata_ and another one), rapacious birds that can fly but
prefer to run.
Seriemas also have a "specialized" pedal digit #2 that may surprise
you. This was discussed some time ago, you may want to view the archives. DV
