Acrobatic couple-Indian Hornbills

On a simbal tree by the roadside, I spotted a hornbill. There was a lot of traffic, but I was allowed to jump out of the car. Suddenly there were 2! no, 3! 2 of them flew off the tree, with one of them upside down, one of them plucked food off the other’s beak/bill!!! Though they were high up from the road and the light was failing……it was a beautiful display of aerial courtship……………….yes, love is in the air….
