Perruche ondulée (Melopsittacus undulatus) : Fifi

L

My first pet was a sweet green boy named Feather. I wanted to call my parakeet Polly, but we quickly learned that the blue on the "nose" signifies it is male. Thus, Feather!

The helmeted hornbill (Rhinoplax vigil) is a very lg bird found on the Malay peninsula, Sumatra & Borneo. The call is described as hoots followed by maniacal laughter. It eats mostly fruit, especially figs. It may also use the casque as a weighted tool to dig into rotten wood & loose bark in search of insects & similar prey. Unlike many fruit-eating hornbills, it is sedentary & pairs maintain a territory.
