Cassowary Update

The three chicks are now two. We have no idea what happened to the third one but goannas, wild pigs and pythons are about.
After a feed, males decides to rest. One of the chicks is still active. Notice that the chick is a bit on the skinny side. This is probably a result of the drought conditions that have resulted in a rather sparse supply of food for foragers.
Both the adult male and his chicks often arrive wet. They probablybathe in the creek that is not far from our house.
