'He' seemed ok, the hornbill was having a stroll around it's enclosure prior to this shot (in a tree at this point). What got me was it's eyelashes! The carnival shots were taken in my home town in Somerset Steve.

Awww, looks like he's the worse for wear.

Still a cute little critter. Hope he's having an easy life.

Kinda reminds me of the mutant starling I had around here for a few years. He had a *really* long beak that wouldn't close right. Top half would bend to (eg) the left and down, and the bottom half would bend to the right and up, so that with his beak "closed", they'd scissor past each other.

Was encouraging to see him the 2nd year in a row, but I haven't seen him around *this* year so far.

It seems to have fractured its beak. Great shot Dave! Looks like a fantastic zoo. Isn't Exmoor where you took your carnival shots?

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
