There is one proud father walking around Tower Hill, with his six children in tow.

Friends of Tower Hill member John Sutherland sighted the six emu chicks over a week ago, but it took him until Wednesday to find them again.

Mr Sutherland said they were the first emu chicks born at the State Game Reserve this season.  

There are also a large number of Black Swan signets, with breeding pairs taking up residence.

“This indicates good rain this year,” said Mr Sutherland.

Mr Sutherland warned motorists needed to be careful when driving around the Tower Hill road, with the emu chicks and their father spending time near the entrance.
