Wreathed Hornbill

Managed to steal  an hour or so each morning/evening from a sight seeing trip to Langkawi and got lucky with  a  pair of Wreathed Hornbills  (a male and female). I can't be sure but I remember reading somewhere that the Wreathed Hornbill is listed as a migrant  in  Langkawi though.

There were plenty of  Great Hornbills and the noisy Pied in the morning and Brown Hawk Owls during the nite.

Not a crisp photo because he was way too high for any lens : - ).


This Dusky Leaf Monkey is common throughout the Island.  Thanks for stopping by.

Belle prise!
le Horn bill est certainement difficile à approcher...
et le singe est magnifique !
