Malabar Grey Hornbill

Western ghats is a treasure trove of flora and fauna, some of it found only here. In my previous post I had posted one such bird. Today's bird is one such, Western Ghats exclusive, the Malabar Grey Hornbill (Ocyceros griseus). I was relaxing after a heavy lunch, when I saw the Hornbill, munching on its lunch. I saw it break its sting, munched the arthropod, and fed it to its mate, incubating its eggs in a tree. A truly delightful scene. Photographed at Ganeshgudi, in Karnataka.
