Oriental Pied Hornbills Anthracoceros albirostris@ Changi by wong1979
Thanks to Wong1979 from clubsnap for graciously allowing me to reproduce his excellent pictures of the Oriental Pied Hornbills [ Anthracoceros albirostris ] here on this blog. Thanks to Sharkspin for id of the birds. I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the
Hornbill Project Singapore you CAN make a difference. Read all about
our own hornbills and how you can help with your sightings on the
bird ecology blog http://besgroup.blogspot.com
Be Watchful for poachers though when admiring these birds. It would be sad if they were caught by poachers (like the colugo incident) or the nests were disturbed.
