Artist's Description

This cassowary had just crossed the road and looked like it may corss back to the other side. It was seen on the road to Tully Heads and Hull Heads near Tully in Far North Queensland. This is the wet tropics.

I hadn’t been back in the north for long and this was the first cassowary I’d seen crossing the road in years and I had time to pull over and take a photo of it before it vanished into the scrub. Luckily it was a very quiet road and no other traffic was passing at the time.

This bird was moving very slowly.

By the time I got this photo, the bird had already crossed the road and instead of going into the trees it turned away from me and walked along the treeline away from me before turning back to cross the road again. It got too far away from me to take any more useful photos of it so I left it to its wanderings and continued on my way to the beach.

The cassowary is now endangered due to loss of habitat and road kills (among other things).

There are many local people working to protect the cassowary and there are many signs along roads in the region telling motorists to slow down as cassowaries use the area. They have now named their local regional council (local government region) the ‘Casowary Coast Council’.
