However, the highlight of bird watching at Anshi Camp is the opportunity to observe the majestic Hornbills in their natural habitat.
The region is home to several Hornbill species, including the Indian Grey Hornbill, Malabar Grey Hornbill, Great Hornbill, and Malabar Pied Hornbill. These magnificent birds are known for their large beaks, which they use to catch and eat insects, small animals, and fruits. They are also important seed dispersers, helping to maintain the ecological balance of the forest. Hornbills are monogamous, and the male will seal the female in a nest cavity during the breeding season, providing her with food until the chicks are ready to leave the nest. Observing these birds in their natural habitat is truly a unique experience that should not be missed.
Apart from Hornbills, the forests of Anshi Camp are also home to a variety of Woodpeckers and Owls. Woodpeckers are known for their distinctive drumming sounds, which they make by drumming their beaks on trees. They have a unique tongue that can extend up to four times the length of their beak, which they use to extract insects from tree bark. Owls, on the other hand, are known for their exceptional night vision and silent flight. They are apex predators, feeding on rodents, insects, and other birds. Interestingly, Owls have asymmetrical ears, which helps them to locate the source of sounds accurately.
Some funny facts about Woodpeckers are that they can peck up to 20 times per second, and their heads are protected by a special bone structure that acts as a shock absorber. Owls, on the other hand, are known for their ability to rotate their heads up to 270 degrees, which is facilitated by the unique structure of their neck bones. Their eyes are also fixed in their sockets, so they have to rotate their entire heads to change their field of vision. These interesting facts make Woodpeckers and Owls fascinating birds to observe in the wild.
