This elephant’s world was dark and empty, until a man and a piano came along.

A male Helmeted Hornbill perches above a nest opening high in a giant tree in Thailand. Please check out my newest @NatGeo article on this critically endangered species, hitting the newsstands and your mailboxes this week as part of the special series for the Year of the Bird 2018 in partnership with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. One of the largest birds of Southeast Asian rain forests, this ancient species with its bare neck and solid horn on its head called a “casque” has been decimated by hunting, and I’m hoping this story will bring more attention to its plight.

Arriving at the nest to feed the female and chick inside, this male Helmeted Hornbill is coughing up a bunch of figs… I think a few more came out than he intended! The male must provision his mate and chick for the entire nesting period. They are inside a cavity in the tree and the opening is just below the male’s perch.

Our Spotting of the Week is one of dozens of species which call the pitcher plant Nepenthes ampullaria home! The tiny Matang Narrow-mouthed Frog (Microhyla borneensis) is endemic to the Matang Range in Sarawak on the island of Borneo, and spends most of its life cycle in the traps of Nepenthes ampullaria. This frog shares its pitcher habitat with fly and midge larvae, mites, ants, bacterial communities and a species of crab spider, Misumenops nepenthicola.
