Late in the afternoon a flock of Trumpeter Hornbills arrive and land in the pine trees that line some of the fencing. They seem to feed off the pine cones and make a raquet. They are quite inqusitive birds and will hopefully get a better picture.

The eyes are brown or red,with pink surrounding skin. They are similar to Silvery-cheeked Hornbill.
