nature animals of malabar grey hornbill pictures

The Malabar grey hornbill is a large bird, but mid-sized for a hornbill, at 45 to 58 cm (18 to 23 in) in length. It has a 23 cm (9.1 in) tail and pale or yellowish to orange bill.Males have a reddish bill with a yellow tip and the females have a plain yellow bill with black at the base of the lower mandible and a black stripe along the culmen. They show a broad whitish superciliary band above the eye, running down to the neck. They fly with a strong flap and glide flight and hop around heavily on the outer branches of large fruiting trees. They have brown-grey wings, a white carpal patch and black primary flight feathers tipped with white. The Indian grey hornbill, which is found mainly on the adjoining plains, is easily told apart by its prominent casque, and in flight by the white trailing edge of the entire wing. These grey hornbill has a grey back and a cinnamon vent. The long tail is blackish with a white tip, and the underparts are grey with white streaks. The long curved bill has no casque. Immature birds have browner upperparts and a yellow bill. Young birds have a dull white or yellow iris.

The grey hornbill loud calls are distinctive and include "hysterical cackling", "laughing" and "screeching" calls.They are found mainly in dense forest habitats, the thinner dry forest habitat of the plains is typically occupied by the Indian grey hornbill. This hornbill is found in small groups mainly in habitats with good tree cover and being large frugivores, they are important as seed dispersal agents for many species of fruit bearing forest trees.They also feed on small vertebrates and in captivity they will readily take meat.To see funny pics....

wallpapers of animals white cairn terrier puppies

The Cairn Terrier has a harsh weather-resistant outer coat that can be black, cream, wheaten, red, gray, or brindled in any of these colours. Pure black, black and tan, and white are not permitted by many kennel clubs.These puppies are shed very little but should always be hand stripped.If done incorrectly this can cause discomfort to the dog, causing it to shy away from future hand stripping. Removing the dead hair in this manner allows new growth to come in. This new growth helps protect the dog from water and dirt.

Cairn Terrier ancestors are from Scotland, where the wire coat repels water and keeps the dog dry even in rainy or damp climates. Keeping the Cairn Terrier coat in its original state will prevent possible skin irritations. As dead hair is removed by stripping the coat, new growth comes in and the skin and coat will remain healthy. Clipper-cutting a Cairn might destroy the protective wire coat unique to this breed.It is wise to have a pet examined to rule out heritable skin diseases if a Cairn is obtained from unknown sources (i.e. pet stores, rescues, or puppy mills).This puppy Weight is 10-16 pounds (4.5-6.8 kg) and Height is 9–13 inches (23–33 cm).These dogs are generally healthy and live on average about Life span is 12–17 years and Litter size is 2-10.To see more pics.....

wallpapers of bird red bellied woodpecker collections

The red-bellied woodpecker is a medium-sized woodpecker of the Picidae family. It breeds in southern Canada and the northeastern United States, ranging as far south as Florida and as far west as Texas.The adults are mainly light gray on the face and underparts, they have black and white barred patterns on their back, wings and tail. Adult males have a red cap going from the bill to the nape and females have a red patch on the nape and another above the bill. The reddish tinge on the belly that gives the bird its name is difficult to see in field identification. These birds are 22.85 to 26.7 cm (9.00 to 10.51 in) long, and have a wingspan of 38 to 46 cm (15 to 18 in).

Red-bellied woodpeckers are noisy birds, and have many varied calls. Calls have been described as sounding like churr-churr-churr or thrraa-thrraa-thrraa with an alternating br-r-r-r-t sound. Males tend to call and drum more frequently than females, but both sexes call. Often, these woodpeckers "drum" to attract mates. They tap on aluminum roofs, metal guttering, hollow trees and even transformer boxes, in urban environments, to communicate with potential partners. Babies have a high-pitched begging call of pree-pree-pree. They will continue to give a begging call whenever they see their parents for a while after fledging.These birds mainly search out arthropods on tree trunks. They may also catch insects in flight. They are omnivores, eating insects, fruits, nuts and seeds. Their breeding habitat is usually deciduous forests and nest in the decayed cavities of dead trees, old stumps, or in live trees that have softer wood such as elms, maples, or willows, both sexes assist in digging nesting cavities. Areas around nest sites are marked with drilling holes to warn others away,It depends on large trees for nesting. In areas that are extensively deforested, the birds will sometimes utilize gardens, but for the most part simply will not be present in any numbers.
The red-bellied woodpecker expresses foraging behavior by catching or storing food. This woodpecker uses its bill for foraging as a chisel drilling into bark or probing cracks on trunk of trees.In this manner, the red-bellied woodpecker is able to pull out beetles and other insects from the tree with the help of its long tongue.This behavior is also seen for storing food from other animals by hiding food behind bark or deep in cracks of a tree.

The Indian Fantail is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Indian Fantails, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons are all descendants from the rock pigeon.The keepers at the San Diego Zoo who had obviously never seen Indian Fantail pigeons before were so taken by their distinct looks that they decided to keep, and later breed and develop them. It was from these two lucky birds that the species of Indian Fantail pigeons spread beyond Indian shores and reached the farthest corners of the world.

Their average weight is 13 ounces (369 g) and their average length is 11 inches (28 cm). It is interesting to note that the birds walk on their toes. The chest is carried upright so that it is higher than the bird’s head, which rests back on the cushion formed by the tail feathers.for different pics....
