[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Malabar Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros coronatus) also known as lesser Pied Hornbill, is a hornbill.[2] Hornbills are a family of tropical near-passerine birds found in the Old World.
The Malabar Pied Hornbill is a common resident breeder in tropical and subtropical Asia from India east to Borneo. Its habitat is evergreen and moist deciduous forests, often near human settlements.
I am just back from my trip to Dandeli, North Karnataka house for these hornbills. The forest with pristine nature was divine blessings for our stay.
