Nature is truly amazing in a lot of ways. And if you love to learn about wildlife, you cannot miss out on this post by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan. To mark the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the IFS shared a ‘beautiful love story’ of two hornbills on Twitter.
In the video, a male hornbill can be seen feeding his nest-bound female companion by delivering food to her and using his beak to help. In the post’s caption, the officer informed, “Show me a more beautiful love story than this. The male Hornbill feeding the female, who has locked herself in nest to raise the kids. This he will do for few months, daily.”
