This is the another Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill posted HERE and ALSO HERE . Note the white feathers and compare it with the dull colour of the previous posts. This gives one an idea of how much red we have in the dust here where we live in Gauteng.
This is a typical pose of this hornbill, where it bends its neck and calls. M & F often call in duet. The species info are given under the two references.
His backside looks like a brush the ladies use to powder their noses, just softer.
