This Bird Has His Eye On You

If anyone knows the name of this bird, let me know... I do know that this guy had quite the personality and was not the least bit shy. They seem to be everywhere in Africa (well, at least in Botswana), and are little rascals...

Gorgeous portrait! I believe it is a Crowned Hornbill. At least that's how I ended up identifying the one I shot a while ago! :)
Cheers, Klaus

I was going to say, "I'll bet Klaus knows!" He did.

Excellent photograph!

Great shot! That is some kind of bird and it's beak, oddly enough, reminds me of an aging banana.

Beautiful picture! I believe it's a Yellow Hornbill. I saw some of these guys while I was in South Africa and they would come right up to you and almost take the food right out of your hands!
