Same Cassowary as yesterday by joannakate

Same Cassowary as yesterday

But sitting down. He was wandering around in front of us, then suddenly plonked himself down on the path. Now you can see the powerful feet, especially the dagger like claw on the inside of each foot. For those not Australian, the female lays the eggs then leaves (done her bit), and the male sits on the eggs, hatches and takes care of the young until they're old enough to look after themselves
They are amazing looking birds.

@pusspup this one was quiet and placid, but the breeding season is later in the year so people would need to be more aware then if you live in the rainforest here in FNQ

Love these huge Cassowary's ....we were in an open coffee shop way up north once & a Cassowary strolled in, the waiters came out with brooms & very gently shooed him away from the customers talking gently all the time..They said he often came to visit...Ha-Ha.

This really provides some perspective on how large these birds are. I can't imagine being chased by one!
