Dandeli in the Indian state of Karnataka is famous for Hornbills. I shot this Malabar Pied Hornbill in the Dandeli Timber Depot in the morning. The light was beautiful and the birds were making merry on the fig trees.

This striking black-and-white hornbill has a black neck and white underparts. Its black wings are tipped with white, and the tail is white on the outside with a black stripe running along the centre. The large yellow and black beak is topped with a big over-sized casque that ends in a single point. This hornbill is about 65-92 cm long and weighs about one kilogram. Male has a creamy white large bill with black base, and a huge ivory yellow and black casque with projecting front end, red eye with black bare skin, female is smaller with bare skin around eye pale blue, becoming pink during breeding season.They call loudly in squeals and cackles, either kleng-keng, kek-kek-kek or a kak-kak, kak-kak.

Although its name suggests that it is restricted to the Western Ghats, it is found in two regions of India: one population in the forests of central (Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh) and eastern India (Bihar, Orissa), and another in the foothills of the Western Ghats in parts of Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Another population is found in Sri Lanka. They are often found in forests near streams and small rivers. Rainforest margins and deciduous woodlands, visits isolated fruiting trees, plains up to 300 m.

Thanks for viewing.
