Cassowaries!

Well, it's now official - we have a Cassowary at Daintree Valley Haven!  A while ago a guest saw what he thought was a Cassowary footprint and this afternoon I saw a strange pile of 'something' (below) on the driveway behind the bungalows and upon checking this site -http://www.amazingaustralia.com.au/animals/cassowary.htm  it confirmed what I suspected!  Very exciting and I do hope to get a photo of it.  We will of course now have to warn guests to be careful as they are very big birds and can be dangerous if provoked.

If you look at the above website you'll see a very rare photo of Cassowaries mating - this photo was taken at Coopers Creek by Rosemary Mulcahy the first time she and Brian stayed with us!
