Ayep.

They can be a real problem at Land Warfare Centre Tully. Scrub is so thick (think jungle) that you can have one of them 6 feet away and not see it until the fucker is on top of you. Kind of like the scene from Jurassic Park.

According to the locals, they get real aggressive for about 4 weeks of the year when the eggs are in the nest. Supposedly take on and kill wild dogs and pigs that would otherwise eat the eggs.

Most of the rest of the time they will fade away into the scrub and you'll never see them. That 4 week period? Don't run any courses...

Definitely on the "Do not fuck with" list.

I never heard of this bird until this story. Mmmm. Should be an episode of 1000 Ways to Die. But it is Florida. There are worse deaths. Like getting swallowed up in a sinkhole while asleep in your bed.
