Sleepy Cassowary

The dominant male cassowary (“Dad”) in our area feels quite relaxed around us. So much so, that sometimes he sits down and dozes off for a while.

You wouldn’t really want to sit down on the forest floor at the moment, as there are still quite a few leeches. But what can a cassowary do?

Maybe keep the feet off the ground?

Quite impressive, those Velociraptor feet!

No, that’s how they often sit, it might be are more relaxing pose than it appears.

And then he slowly closed his eyes to take a few catnaps.

  1. Interesting observations and great photos. Also love the moths on the next post.
    We have decided to head north from about 24 June and not stop for long until we reach someplace warm.
