That reminds me. Last July I was woken up by loud shrill cry in the morning. Since I had never heard that sound before, I looked out of my bedroom window. I saw these majestic birds in the tree next to my house. I don't have good birding glass, pardon the low quality shots. Each were close to 2.5ft from beak to tail.

I am told these are Malabar pied Hornbill. I didn't go to them, instead they visited at my Manipal home.

For one reason or another I find myself tied down at home for a while, so the terrace here is my action theatre!

i20ian - Isn't the second pic a White Browed Bulbul? That's a good catch since they do not come out in the open quite often

Yes indeed.. They are highly elusive but quite common in Palakkad.
