With darker plumage and a diet of veggie chips and Roppolo’s pizza, the hipster is more comfortable in an urban setting. Unlike the reclusive cassowary, this species flocks around central Austin. In particular, music from Emo’s and South Congress’ live stages soothes their nerves and aids in mating dances. Binoculars are not a necessity when viewing the creatures in their own habitat, as they are friendly and might accept you as one of their own.
