A Lovely Christmas Gift

 After a couple of months without any visits by a cassowary this fellow turned up.

 
 "It" is a juvenile, about 1/3 the size of an adult and lacking an adult casque. The colours and wattles are not yet fully developed. We won't know the sex for another several months.
 The bird is probably 2-3 years old

We hope it has a better fate than some of the others in the neighbourhood. Maurouding dogs and cars are their worst enemies.

Happy Holidays to All.
