Southern Cassowary (Casuarius casuarius)

My first encounter with a cassowary. I was driving very slowly to Mission Beach and a driver coming in my direction made me light signs. I began driving even slower and, only a few meters ahead, I saw this beauty.

I was lucky because there were no cars behind me and I could keep beside him for a while and take a few shots.

 

I'm not sure, but I think it's a male.
