Here's my new best birding buddy. We spent 90 minutes close together on the Wallaman Falls road yesterday.
He doesn't say much, so I did most of the talking. Nothing new there.
He did most of the eating, including unknown small fruit mashed by motorists.
He's got a splendid casque for butting through the forest, so he's Casca, 'my' Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius)
