A year later, thought you may be interested in this memory from our trip:
= = = = = = = =
We were out in the wilds, mountains, wooded. Someone spotted this Rufous-necked Hornbill – – quite rare/endangered. The bus stopped right away. There was a flying squirrel going between trees which the Hornbill proceeded to catch, beat to death, crush the bones and then eat. The video stops before getting to the eating part.

The Rufous-Necked Hornbill is a Hornbill from the Aceros family.
The head, neck, and lower body of the male are colored rufous, with deeper coloration on the flanks and abdomen. The middle primaries and the lower half of the tail are tipped white. The rest of the hornbill’s plumage is a glossy dark-green and black. The lower tail-covert feathers are colored chestnut mixed with black.The female on the other hand, is black except for the tip of their tail.
The Rufous-Necked Hornbill is found in Northeast India, Bhutan, Burma, Tibet, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
