Un Bucero - The Hornbill

Tockus leucomelas

Per essere precisi si tratta di un Bucero
del Sud dal becco giallo.
Molto comune.
Ha un modo di fissarti decisamente
Mai lasciare biscotti sul tavolo se c'è
uno di questi "signori" sull'albero vicino...
---To be specific this is a Southern Yellow Billed
Hornbill.Very Common bird.
As you can see it has a very strange and intense
way to watch into your eyes.
Never leave cakes on the table if one of these
"guys" is on the tree close to you...

I’ve never seen this bird before. It is interesting with its sharp look and down-curved bill. And look at that hairdo and black and white feathers. Photo is really great!
