Hi all 🙂 Something interesting happened just after my game of tennis on a hot late afternoon. Remember I snapped a couple of photos of these hornbills a few weeks back? Well, just as I was cooling down after an exhausting tennis game, I heard from not too far away…the distinctive cackle and call of the birds. I kid you not. I ran to the side and BAM…there they were. I saw one hopping around, then I saw the branches of another tree waver and bob up and down. Hornbill number two. And as if they were having their little secret meetup (or so they thought), another one flew to join them. Three. Four. Five. Five hornbills in one sighting.
Now that’s incredible.
Apparently they’re pretty rare where I’m from which makes it all the more special. But it’s really not about that at all. They’re magnificent creatures and I just love how they try to find spots to hide in trees to avoid being seen hehe. They hop around looking for “safe” and secluded places trying to get comfy. But I persevered. To my surprise, they didn’t fly away immediately. They would have definitely noticed my presence because I got really close to them…instead of fleeing away from the unknown two-legged homosapien…they actually stayed around,looking curiously over the shoulders to see what’s up.
I’m really happy I got to so close to see them in all their beauty 🙂
Hope you liked the pics!
