Southern yellow billed hornbill

By esoxlucius
We saw these little guys everywhere, they wait outside the dens of mongoose waiting for them to wake up in the morning as they warn each other when danger is close. The mongoose foraging disturbs the termites which the hornbills eat and the hornbills warn of predators whilst the mongooses forage.
