Etty Bay and One Huge Bird!

We spent the night at Etty Bay hoping to see Cassowaries which were rumored to come right down on the beach to play in the surf and catch crabs.  We didn’t see a thing and decided to head back to Cairns.

Just as we were heading out of the area on a curvy road, a Cassowary crossed the road right in front of us!  In about 2 seconds I was out of the vehicle and filming!  This one had a taste for the local residents dog food as opposed to its normal diet of Quon dongs.  I was intrigued by these oversize blueberry like fruits.
