The Southern Cassowary is a large species of flightless bird. They live in Indonesia, New Guinea, and parts of Australia. Southern Cassowaries are known to be deadly to humans. They are equipped with a sharp, dagger-like claw on each of their very powerful feet. Cassowaries will attack when provoked, so if you see one - give it some room!

Tomorrow's bird is the Old World counterpart of the New World Snowy Egret. Can you guess what it will be?
