Oriental pied hornbill spotted in Bishan HDB

Isabelle has kindly submitted these pictures of an Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris convexus) perched on a railing at a HDB flat.
Hopefully the residents view the visit as a unique experience being in such close proximity with wildlife. It's like the zoo is being brought to your doorstep.
The man on the street will likely only see them as virus carrying poop machines.  Sadly.
