Update from our OPH correspondent

Received the following update from Gianna in the email recently:

To all of you who expressed interest in the initial nesting phase of our Oriental Pied Hornbill at the end of last year, I thought you might be interested to know that "Mama" has emerged and she and Dad have been flying around foraging for the past 5 days or so. The chicks are still in the nest, and one of them can be seen in the attached photos (check out those eyelashes!). The residents of the house where they are nesting say they have observed 3 chicks inside. We are curious to know when they will emerge.

Looks like another successful breeding year for these two!

All the best,
02nd Feb 2011
