2016-05-15: Hornbills

I’m out of town this weekend, and got this post ready ahead of time, as I knew I wouldn’t be back in time to do my usual “What I’ve seen this week” post.  I hope you enjoy this instead.

According to a quick Google search, there are 29 different hornbills in Southern Africa.  So far, I’ve seen 5 of them.  The variety of shapes and colours was the reason I wanted to create this post.

Now for the photos!
