Cassowary Chicks of 2023

Cassowary Chicks of 2023

On 23 September 2023 Mr Cassowary showed up with three young chicks. He usually ends up with one or two, additional chicks succumbing to predators or accidents. One year he ended up with no chicks at all.

It was obvious that they were young and inexperienced. They stayed close to Pops and were very observant. They will have to be because it is early springtime and hungry snakes, goannas and predatory birds are nesting. A slight error could spell death.

The bubs are very curious about all the new sights, sounds and smells. It seems that they are very young and the dad must have been nesting rather close to our house. Now let's hope the neighbourhood dogs and cats behave themselves.
