Man gets to trapped hornbill just in time


A kind soul in Phang Nga’s Ko Yao island came to the rescue of a hornbill trapped in a muddy swamp in a mangrove forest.

The man said on his “Rao Rak Ko Yao” (We Love Ko Yao) Facebook page that he rushed to the spot after hearing about the stranded bird.

He said the bird could not move and was completely covered in mud. So, he pulled it out and cleaned it before setting it free.

The man said hornbills usually visit the swamp to feed on small fish, and believes this bird got its wings caught in the mud and eventually got pulled into the swamp.
