Searching for Rhinoceros hornbill on rainy day

26 December 2011. It's a wet boxing day....a lot of places in Sarawak are flooded because it rained for more than 24 hours! When the rain stopped for few hours, I went to look for Rhinoceros hornbill (Buceros rhinoceros) in northern Kuching. Every year, the hornbills, monkeys & other animals will come to eat the fruit of a giant fig tree in that jungle. In this trip, my friend & I saw the hornbill but failed to photograph it due to the dense forest canopy. We only managed to photograph the leaf monkeys.

I found this animal skull at the tower....probably it's a dead squirrel eaten by eagle???

Leaf monkey again.
