Malabar Pied Hornbill

Adult flock


Aditya Nayak


The sighting was at Gundbala village in Uttara Kannada district. The hornbill flock seemed to be getting ready to disperse from their roosting site - time of observation was ~ 6:15 am. The image uploaded has been compressed, but the original image is also hazy due to low light conditions. About half the flock was on an adjacent tree.
