We has already seen the Cassowary the first day. his day we did seek out some wild ones and found a family, two adults and one chick, walking the forest. To my friends' dismay these came really close. The young headed my way and came as close as a meter from me. And the adult following. I stayed put as I did not want to disturb them or make them nervous. Could be harmful to me to. In the forest and so close I could not get good shots. But I have some from the first day.

  1. What a cool looking bird, their colors are pretty. Happy Tuesday, enjoy the week ahead!

  2. Love the cassowary bird. I used to go down to Etty Bay to see one and his cicik

  3. Great to see and photograph such fantastic birds. You certainly saw lots of interesting birds on your tour out here to Australia.

  4. Spectacular looking birds - amazing colours.

  5. Oh My Goodness, what a great bird!

  6. They are awesome to look at, but word has it that they are very agresive and can do a lot of damage with their giant claws (or talons if that is what they are called). Brave you were paid off with awesome pictures. I know standing still is the right thing to do, but my heart would have been going pitter-patter :)

  7. Such a fascinating bird, especially that interesting topknot! I'm surprised they made it so close to you, but glad there was no problem.

  8. The cassowary is like an exotic bird with those colours.
