The largest Hornbill in the world and rare by its status in Borneo itself besides White-crowned and Wreathed Hornbill. My first sighting at Kinabatangan River in 2003 near Pangi Hill then after many years, heard and it was responding the playback after few minutes. A pair flew near the boat at Oxbow Lake providing excellent pictures with blue sky !
Other notable species seen with Daniel and Arlief during their 6 days trip with me and John Bakar recently was :
- Crimson-headed Partridge
- Red-breasted Partridge
- Wreathed Hornbill
- Bornean Pygmy Elephant
