Buceros bicornis (i)

Great hornbill proved to be a popular attraction for birder and tourist alike. Up to five birds frequented the pool area of the resort, arriving from the jungle fringed shores mid-afternoon.

The photographs featured here are of a female - the white iris is the give away. The males (to feature in a seperate post) are larger have deep red iris and slightly different colouration on the bill / casque.
