“A pair of oriental pied hornbills (Anthracoceros albirostris) appeared in a Curry Leaf Tree (Murraya koenigii) in my garden in Braddell Heights over the weekend (Sept 15) (below).
“As the female walked along the branches of the Curry Leaf Tree, I managed to get some close-up shots of her through a second-floor window (both below):
“The two birds then flew off to two roadside trees in the front of the house and called loudly before flying off again.
“Male perched in coconut tree (below).
“Hornbills have been seen in the estate before but not regularly. Do any birders know if there are any resident hornbills in what’s left of Bidadari/Woodleigh?”
