An adult female cassowary feeding on a burdekin plum (rainforest fruit). These amazing birds play a vital role in distributing seeds from the fruits they eat through out the rainforests of far North Queensland. Their scats provide the optimum nutrients and growing conditions for the fruit trees to germinate. They help replenish the forests with native plants many other animals rely on for a healty existance. While I was watching this bird I noticed another one in the forest behind me and then another to the right of me. For a brief moment I had thoughts of Jurrasic park raptors. This feeling of being hunted passed quickly and i continued photographing these magnificent animals.
