Description

Our resident major spotted woodpecker flew with a stick in its beak to the cherry tree where it was hammering the trunk and using the stick to probe for prey.

I've never seen something like this before, but apparently it is not unheard of:

Description

Matema has two large hornbill species. Trumpeter Hornbills live in the trees along the lake shore and probably further away. The Crowned Hornbills are more mountain-bound.

But they are quite easy to spot and hear in the slightly higher parts of the village and in the montane forests.
