Barbara, 50 yr old Cassoway of Mission Beach QLD. by 


Barbara is an endangered Cassowary and is reputed to be almost 50 years old, I found her strolling through the rainforest as surprised to see me as I was her.

I love it too that she is called Barbara, what else could you call her..?

    she’s a honey! Would I have met her on the licuala walk at Mission beach??? you could pop some of your work in the Queensland group
    Sorry for being bossy :))))

  • thanks Jenny, I have joined … She is a Bingil Bay bird…although some of the other Cassowaries on my site are Licuala, that is a great cassowary spotting place

    yeah and the little creek, is it Lacey Ck?? I walk down that way lots, not for a wee while tho! and the hill at Bingil bay with the big lizards and the jetty there too! haven’t been down a while as packing up to move house (going to Etty bay road).
