Oriental Pied Hornbill at Telecommunication Tower

Spotted this noisy pair of Oriental Pied Hornbill (Anthracoceros albirostris) at a Telecommunication Tower about 500 meters from my houseProbably in mating ritual - male above. The breeding season for hornbills in Malaysia generally starts from January until July.

"Do they not see the birds above them, spreading out their wings and folding them in? None upholds them except the Most Beneficent (Allah). Verily, He is the All-Seer of everything".
