    Default Monkey with Hornbills for Company.........Jim Corbett!

    The monkey and the Hornbills were feeding on the same tree but at either end of the tree.I was waiting for this moment where both are in frame!(I was confused whether to post this in the Mammals section or Birds Section!)......the Hornbills seems to be not liking the presence of a big monkey and they are showing their back to it!

    I think normally birds and monkeys share the space. Hornbills being big birds might not be comfortable to have the monkey so close. Thanks for sharing.

    They feast on the same food. Hornbills are careful when they generally start nesting during feb/march. The female seals itself in the tree hole. So they won't want any one close by. A narrow aperture would have been better here. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
