I'm not much of a bird photographer but these southern cassowaries (Casuarius casuarius) are an exception. Standing as tall as an adult human, these birds can actually be quite dangerous if they feel threatened or are spooked. Luckily these individuals on the coast are quite used to humans. Unfortunately cassowaries are currently listed as vulnerable with their populations continuing to decline. Look out for cassowaries on the roads when you're driving in north qld!
