Gunung Raya – Langkawi

The sun was out this morning, and it is still out this afternoon. So off on the bike I went to Gunung Raya. A couple of kilometers up the hill, I stopped and lo and behold, there was a tree full of Great Hornbills feeding on the fruit on this massive tree. There must have been about eight of them.
