Oriental Pied Hornbill
Photographer: Marian Herz
Location: Kaziranga National Park
Story: 
I was in Kaziranga National Park in Assam (northeast) India. We were on our morning drive when the guide spotted this hornbill. It was feeding, but was very shy. We were able to position the vehicle under the tree and the hornbill finally moved into the open. While taking the picture against a bright sky was difficult, I was able to pull out the picture.
