Hello from Coquette Point,
Cassowary Jessie and Snout are into their second week of
courtship and are daily moving around in a one square kilometre range of rainforest, melaleuca and mangrove swamps.
Jan Shang reported she saw the two cassowaries eating fallen Quandong fruits close to her house when for some unknown reason matriarch Jessie got cranky and chased
the male Snout. Whatever the disagreement between the two, later that day they were seen walking together again.
On Wednesday afternoon I saw them enter the Melaleuca swamp walking quickly through the trees.
