1.Ostrich Stuck In Rabbit Warren

I assume the Rabbit Warren is 'burrow', which could be read as 'borough'.

'Borough' would be preceded by an ostrich or the name of an ostrich.

I don't think there is an 'Emuborough' LOL.

bury (one's) head in the sand
To avoid, or try to avoid, a particular situation by pretending that it does not exist. The phrase refers to the common but mistaken belief that ostriches bury their heads in the sand when frightened, so as to avoid being seen.
