Cassowaries in the Garden
I went round a friend's house yesterday and there was an adult male cassowary with a chick happily wandering round in the garden. It can't have been more than four feet away from me but, luckily, I was on the terrace of the house behind a fence so it was a nice, relaxing meeting rather than a scary "wonder when he's going to kick me" meeting. Anyway, I'm glad to report that the adult and the chick both looked very healthy.
