Cassowary - first sighting!

There we were sitting in the lounge after lunch today - looked out and what did we see, right by our front doorstep?!!!!  We were totally blown away!  It (we're not sure if it's a he or a she - perhaps quite young as the red wattle isn't very bright?) wandered around, had a good look at us, left us another 'message' on the lawn, honked a few times then ambled off into the rainforest!  They are quite territorial birds and the breeding season is from now until November so hopefully it will stay around for a while. 

Great excitement!
