How lucky we are to have perfect conditions for a tropical Christmas this year. However Darwin may not be so lucky!
I received news from friends at El Arish this week, they received a wonderful Christmas surprise on December 19. The resident male cassowary which has been managing without official supplementary feed since cyclone ‘Yasi’ brought in three tiny chicks to show off. The event was reported to the Cassowary sighting web-site and within two days an official food station was established for them. I received a report today that Dad and chicks were fine and Dad was seen scratching the ground and unearthing insects and worms which the chicks were gobbling up.
