Hornbills


Have you ever seen, heard, or experienced the majestic flight of these majestic birds? The slow and dramatic whooshing of a pair of hornbills in the sky would stop you in your tracks and make you feel giddy at their wonder.

Have you seen these birds foraging freely in the tree canopy?

Such news upset me.

  1. I've seen them once in Malaysia. It's a shame on what these guys did, but so much more happens where we are not aware off ... human being can be very very cruel !

  3. Hi! Thanks for your comment on my blog! Im happy Stumpe made you smile, he did his job well and I think I will give him a rise ^^
    Stumpe is not a real word, it's called Stump in swedish too, I just played with the word a little bit :)
    Stump is also the word I used for rabbit's tail when I was a kid :)
