Great Hornbill

Periyar WLS, Kerala



We were travelling in the boat that takes one through the Periyar Wild Life Sanctuary lake. On the return trip, almost half way back, I saw a fleeting glimpse of the yellow colour on the right side of the lake. Since the birds were very far away I took the photographs using a 300 mm lens at a long distance. First I noticed one and soon I noticed another one on the top.
