And then there were four hornbills

Looking back at our last blog post, I wrote that if we were lucky, we might spot the gregarious Oriental Pied Hornbills during our monthly guided trip to Chek Jawa Boardwalk. We must have been REALLY fortunate; we saw four Oriental Pied Hornbills on one tree during our trip on 25th September, 2010. Here is proof of the sighting!
