I love red hornbills!! Yours look a little whiter than the ones we have here in West Africa... Could that be?

Back in Kenya, the hornbill watched over the sleepy JM as evening wandered into night... Love it JM! Cheers to you Sir!

Seen here, only in aviaries in zoos, if then!

I think this critter could be dangerous if it decided it wanted for some reason to poke a hole in your head! What a bill on this hornbill!

This regal bird appears to be the King of the land. He has that "don't mess with me" look.:)
