Nonchalant ostriches surprise visitors in Aegean resort town of Bodrum

Two ostriches brought to the Aegean resort town of Bodrum six years ago are continuing to surprise visitors with their relaxed attitudes, walking the streets just like regular local residents. 

The ostriches, named ““Bihter” and “Behlül” after the lead characters from a popular Turkish novel and later TV series “Aşk-ı Memnu” (Forbidden Love), often leave the holiday resort where they were originally placed to walk around Bodrum, Doğan News Agency reported on March 1.

While the ostriches have become a common sight among locals, visitors are often surprised by the birds’ casual demeanor as they wander around the town.
