      Indeed Mark, Makes me think how easy it would be to smuggle birds here through the torres strait, lol

      Yeah this species isn't common in zoos. I'm trying to get/find a picture of the Helmeted Hornbills at the park. Quite a bird. The problem with photographing them is that they live in 8 to 10-metre high aviaries, and they like to stay high up. Good for their breeding, not so good for people trying to spot them.
