Placing hood for restraint of ostrich, step 2
Placing hood for restraint of ostrich, step 2

Grasping the beak or head of the ostrich allows the handler to properly apply the head cover. Although the ostrich in the photo appears sedate, this is seldom the case. Often, the ostrich is excited, and the handler must grasp the beak/head rapidly to prepare to apply the hood.
