Rhinocerous Hornbill

I am not a birder.  I cannot really understand the checklist approach to wildlife viewing, or enjoying something I have to see through binoculars.  I like that birders support ecotourism and wish them no ill, but I definitely don't like to travel with them!  I was lucky in that this last trip no one was a birder - two people liked birds but they were not obsessive about it!  I do see a lot of birds in my travels, and when there is no mammal to photograph, sometimes I take photos of the birds just for practice.  I saw lots of hornbills in Borneo.  This is a rhinocerous hornbill.
