I am gonna be anti-scoial here and say that don't let every one know. There is a nest there and any disturbace may cause the mother to abandon the kids.....;pGood shots!:thumbsup:
Didn't know we have hornbills here.
May I know which part of Changi Village are the birds?
Firstly, great shots! Especially the one with the female peeking outta the nesting hole. However, I do agree with budak that there are known sites to photograph hornbills without imposing unwanted stress/disturbance that would endanger their nesting success.Well, I dont think these hornbills here are disturbed by people as their nests are just right above the food centres area . There are heavy traffic, buses, noise pollution, people sitting below, smokers, loud noises. If they had want to abandon their nest, they would hav done it and hide in the jungles or Ubin to do so.
I am sure many of the customers below at the food areas, see these birds all the time and who knows god forbid, maybe had done worst thing.
We photographers are more responsible people, who knows the need to preserve nature and its environment and I believe would be more discreet in our actions I hope.
ups for responsible nature photographyIt would be good to read one's birder's experience and stand on being "selfish" and why he doesn't publicise active nesting sites:
