Bingil Bay Garners Beach - Joov and Cyril
Cyril (left) Joov (right)
'Joov' and 'Cyril'(ina) have got together as a cassowary couple this season. It is a big story because 'Cyril' is a four year old female who, it seems, has replaced a very aged bird, 'Barbara', well known to the Bingil Bay/Garners Beach community.
'Barbara' is one of Mrs Freda Jorrisen's birds. That means she is almost 50 years old.
'Barbara' has been the mate of 'Joov' for the last three years and Joov, this year, as an 8 year old, has for the first time successfully raised a chick. (Larry)
