Cassowary Sightings Bike Log #9

December 9, 2010

Watched a large adult cassowary sprint across the Tully/Mission Beach road to safety..just missing being scuttled by an oncoming car.  Bird was definitely ran on along track next to banana plantings for about 60yds before pulling up to walk, but every now and then it would do a short sprint.

Watched large adult run across road in front of car!  Between Lindsay road, Carmoo and Sellars Banana farm.  Very close call as car did not stop although it did slow down a bit, but it was still moving.


Land Birds 1 species
Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) 1 Large adult Cassowary probably female.

Previously Jeff was logging observations using my user id and since all internet has been restored post-Yasi - the system won't let him in. He has just applied for separate log-in but his posts will not follow those done already?

Yes, I noticed the cyclone ;-) So glad you're house is still good and I can't imagine the damage up there. Love the Cassowary posts though and a quick update with maybe one photo of the damage would be very interesting. Wishing you well..... Alan

aha - yes, dealing with TC Yasi has taken up a fair bit of time as it went right over our house (amazingly left it standing). Jeff has a few sightings and photos since but has not yet found time to enter them. don't worry, we'll get back to it!

Hi, Any news lately on the Cassowaries up there? It was good for us to promote a lot when you were posting regularly;-) Cheers Alan
