|Female Cassowary Drinking
Well, I had the best intentions. I have just returned from my trip to Australia where I spent ten days following wild cassowaries through the Queensland rainforest - a project that I fully intended to document on this blog. That is, until the logic board on my laptop failed, rendering the computer unusable. Since I use this to store and edit pictures - and to post to blogs etc. - I was silenced. I picked up the repaired laptop on my way to the airport - on the way home...
Tech discussion as follows:
Me : "What makes the logic board go bad?"
Tech-guy: "No idea."
Me: "Sounds illogical to me."
Anyhow, I will try to reconstruct some of the events of the trip in the next week or so as I get the pictures edited.
This image is of an adult female - the only one I saw during my stay, drinking water out of a rainforest pool. Cassowaries cannot lap up water like a cat, but must scoop it up with their bills, then tilt their head back to let it run down their throat. I was pleased to be able to show this.
