I was walking along the transects as i have been monitoring the Hornbill species found in Neora Valley NP for past one year and all of a sudden a pair of rufous necked hornbill comes and does the courtship feeding. Later since i had marked the Terminallia sp tree that they were trying to make the nest, i found they had sucessfully made one since the male had started the feeding when after three weeks i visited the same transect again
