I'd put my money on it being a Sandhill Crane.

It is an Emu. We had a few emu's on our deer lease when we bought it. Being a large, 2 legged bird, the deer were scared off for a few years from them. We donated them to a group that has emu's around here.
A minor aside...emu is not very good eating. Tough, tough meat.

I have to agree. Emu. there used to be several farms in my area raising them and I was happy to visit them on occasion. They are indeed very good eating, unfortunately in my neck of the woods people are not too adventurous culinarily speaking so all those farms stopped raising them. However....to my eye, the picture in the OP contains an emu.

Maybe the OP could edit the title as it is misleading and you know it.
