The wreathed Hornbill or Rhyticeros undulatus is also called the Bar-pouched Wreathed Hornbill, is a found in forests from far north-eastern India, Bhutan, east and south through mainland Southeast Asia and the Greater Sundas in Indonesia, except Sulawesi, and finally Thailand. Khao Yai National Park is a fantastic habitat for this Hornbill and also to take great shots. When the Fig Trees are fruiting, they like to come and feed and make spectacular flybys such as this and often in pairs or groups of four and six, or in a bigger flock.

For us witnessing this beautiful bird come and feed and flyby is a special treat. After taking great photographs, its time to just observe them through a pair of binoculars, paying attention to their behaviour and flight patterns.
