At the start of the walk, an observant visitor, Karen, spotted an Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) perched on a high branch right above our heads. The hornbills were really quiet that morning, but fortunately we managed to catch a glimpse of this large beautiful bird. It is reported that there are approximately 100 hornbills in the wild in Singapore. It was definitely a good start to the trip! A joy!
