Southern cassowary lays eggs

This 20 April 2017 video is about a southern cassowary nest in Amersfoort zoo in the Netherlands. The male cassowary made the nest. The female bird came, they mated. Now, there are three eggs in the nest.

The male will now sit on the eggs, and care for the young birds after they have hatched.

UPDATE 30 June 2017: a cassowary chick has hatched; live webcam here.

Southern cassowaries are originally from New Guinea and Australia.
