Many of you may not know this, but the last time we were in SA I developed a deep animosity for the hornbill-think Zazu from The Lion King. Every morning there were at least two of the buggers that would peck on the window and wake me up just as it was getting light, say a little after 5. Every morning “peck, peck, peck, peck” over and over again. ARGH! Super annoying. Well guess what. We now have two hornbills at this house that are dumber than rocks, and I mean no offense to the rocks. These two boneheads keep flying into one of the sliding doors. This door is not a solid piece of glass, so it really doesn't make sense why they'd fly into it. I'm happy that there isn't any pecking, but every time they make contact, it sounds like a door is slamming somewhere in the house-a little disconcerting when you are out here all alone. Stupid hornbills.
