Adult pair

While on a birding trip we heard the call of the Great hornbill.. then it was a chase to locate the call and as we grew closer the call grew farther and farther away... then as we were loosing hope.. the call started coming close... and in a few seconds we heard a "swooshhhh" the sound that the wind makes against the nighty wings of the bird and there high on a tree landed two beautiful Great Hornbills.. I have been visiting this area regularly for the past 3 years and this was my first sighting of the Great... what a wonderful experience...
