The cassowary is so big, so strange; like a leftover from prehistoric times.

This is a new one to me. I had to Google it and see exactly what it is and where it comes from. Nice photo of it!

A remarkable bird indeed and what a terrific capture, Jose!!

RedPat said...

How odd is that!!

Hilde said...

beautiful colors of this very special bird, especially the casque of horn on top of the head. I surched on the internet and came to the sam result as you: this bird defenitly is a cassowary.
greetings, Hilde

Interesting crest.

I've seen them in the zoos here, but they do look very strange!

Randy said...

That's a different looking bird.

Quite a peculiar bird!

A handsome fellow!

I wonder why that bird has a big horn on his head.

Ooh another bit of Australia in your blog. You might remember by unsuccessful attempt to see one in the wild when we were up North last year. Mind you if I had seen one I would not have got a great shot like this. They have a dangerous kick so I would have been keeping my distance.
