[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris)
These hornbills "squawks" rather loudly and can be very noisy when they are in a group. This is a portrait of a young female.

Taken in brilliant sunshine/shade exposing for the black feathers was what I was after without losing too much detail.
