Great hornbill, Darjeeling, West Bengal, India, by Partha Sarkar

Picture Story

This picture was taken at the rocky area of Rongtong, at Darjeeling. On that beautiful sunny morning I saw a group of 10-12 Great Hornbill who were relishing their breakfast on a tree. Suddenly, A male great hornbill started flying towards me which was beyond my expectation. I used that golden opportunity to take this brilliant shot. Really, it was a great shot.

The great hornbill also known as the concave-casqued hornbill, great Indian hornbill, or great pied hornbill, is one of the larger members of the hornbill family. It is found in the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
Although I had to wait a long time, the day gifted me a few excellent snapshots.
