OSTRICHES (ESTRIDGES)
[ Also see Animals Birds ]

Prince Edward all in gold, as he great Jove had been,
  The Mountfords all in plumes, like estridges were seen.
      - Michael Drayton, Poly-Olbion (st. 22)

All furnished, all in arms;
  All plum'd like estridges that with the wind
    Bated like eagles having lately bathed;
      Glittering in golden coats like images;
        As full of spirit as the month of May
          And gorgeous as the sun at midsummer;
            Wanton as youthful goats, wild as young bulls.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Vernon at IV, ii)
