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

Great photos, Samurai - and marvellous luck too! How many of us can say a Hornbill comes calling at home? My pathetic attempts from our terrace here is augmented by the dire lack of subjects to try to capture

i20ian, you too are one lucky bloke, I must say! To have a pea-hen come calling at one's back-yard - that would make my day!

Shot this Pelican around two years back, which got published on the NatGeo Daily Dozen recently. From my first outing with a Nikon 200-500 f5.6.

Absolutely brilliant shot!! Natgeo daily dozen is a great achievement, but this could fetch you a few more awards for the framing and composure.

Thank you jayant and glad you liked the picture. After having seen it featured in the NatGeo DD, a UK based press/agency has been in touch with me showing interest to buy the picture. It's been few months, haven't had time to sign the contract and revert.

P.S: Work related pressure + my beautiful little baby girl = No birding planned for another year or so, unfortunately.

Here is another one of mine from the NatGeo Daily Dozen, some time back !

You are most welcome!!

The timing is perfect in this one too. I am sure a lot of hard work and patience has gone into both the photographs. You have a thing for birds. I do follow NatGeo DD regularly, I think I remember the Pelican shot.

I have a few pics which I have clicked but not as good as yours. Will soon upload them in this thread.

What camera and lens kit do you use for birding? I already see you have a Nikon 200-500.
