Malabar Pied Hornbill

Pench NP, Maharashtra

Shaunak Modi


The sighting was near the residential colony inside Pench NP in Maharashtra. There were 2 pied hornbills perched on a nearby tree. I don't know the name of the tree but it had small red berries growing on it. Though I only saw 2 birds, I heard many more in the same tree. The sighting was on January 20, 2016 but for some reason I am unable to select 2016 as a year in the Sighting Details field.
