Glimpse of rare birds

A five-member team set out on a journey to Sangu Matamuhuri reserve forest in pursuit of their dream bird – the great hornbill. On this magical quest, they saw wild orchids and brown-backed needletails flying fast like fighter jets and they gazed at orange bellied leaf birds, black bulbuls and little pied flycatchers amongst many more. And yet, they didn’t catch a glimpse of what they sought. Hope was almost lost when they finally caught a glimpse of this magnificent creature. As the great hornbill flew between treetops, the team was in awe – their journey had been more than worth it.
