Another First Sighting for Wild Wings …….

Just after lunch today we observed a Cassowary for the first time on our property. We were more than a little surprised as, although we have been hoping to attract Cassowary with our plantings, neither of us had expected our first sighting to be on the house lawn! This large adult is probably a female and we surmise that she has been attracted by a number of fruiting Cassowary Plums (Cerbera floribunda). There is not a great abundance of fruit available in the rainforest at the moment and so hunger may have prompted her to expand her usual feeding ground.
