Oriental Pied Hornbills raid Dollarbird nest

Bee Choo Strange visited Capella@ Sentosa with her husband on 3 May 2022 and they saw 2 Oriental Pied Hornbills (Anthracoceros albirostris) raiding the nest hole of the Dollarbird (Eurystomus orientalis). They could not see the nest of the Dollarbird but shared a short video of the Dollarbird trying to chase the hornbills away.
