This was shot at the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary early in the morning.

Info: Widespread residents of India but unrecorded in Sri Lanka. These birds have broad, greyish-white supercillum with dark grey ear-coverts, white tips to primaries and secondaries & white tipped tail. Have prominent black casques. Tails are longer than the Malabar Grey Hornbills. Females are similar to males but have smaller Casques with less pronounced tips.

Habitat: Open forests, wooded areas & fruiting trees.
