Rhinoceros Hornbill

23rd July - 2nd August 2012


A pair or Rhinoceros Hornbill feeding at one of the Fig tree together with Green Imperial Pigeon, Pink-necked Green Pigeon and many more at Kinabatangan River recently on tour with John Bakar, Linda and John Mckean from US.

Managed to get over 150 birds with pictures for John started from Mt. Kinabalu and ended at Tabin Wildlife Reserve. Dipped on the Bristlehead at Rainforest Discovery Centre, Sepilok but excellent view of the female Rufous-collared Kingfisher, Barred Eagle Owl, Whitehead's Spiderhunter and Helmeted Hornbill with Bornean Pygmy Elephant.

They are currently at Fraser's Hill with Durai for more birds until the 5th August.

Images taken with Nikon D300s + 300mm 2.8 VR II and TC1.4x for certain pictures
