A walk on Chek Jawa Boardwalk in February

Sorry for the late post! No, the Crabs have not been hiding in our shells. We have been busy busy Crabs. During the February Chek Jawa walk, a few of us went out exploring with 3 visitors (many signed up but did not show up. Sigh.)

The residents of Chek Jawa Wetlands did not disappointed us. We were absolutely delighted to spot the male Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) a few times during the 2 hours that we were there. He was feeding on the fig tree, resting on the palm trees and flew over our heads several times. Here are pictures of this magnificent bird.
