Great Hornbill

Khao Yai National Park

Anyone who has not only seen this huge bird in flight but also heard the swooshing sound of the wing beats, can truly agree that it is an extraordinary experience.
These birds are still found in the forests of Central Thailand.

I remember seing one like that (or similar) in southern India. Cetainly the most impressive bird I ever saw and heard.
