Yellow Billed Hornbill

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Definitely one of my favourite birds and a true symbol of the African bush.  I can sit and watch these guys for long periods as they dig around in the foliage for food and chat to one another from across the branches.  These are the very birds that are engraved on my wedding ring and featured on our wedding invitations as a symbol of our love of the Africa wildlife.  I shot this photo on a recent trip to the Kruger National Park, I love the setting and display of the Hornbill as he jumps around going about his daily routine.
