Big Bad Mouse Eatin’ Bird

It’s an African Ground Hornbill.

We saw 2 of them at the Zoo Atlanta. It was feeding time and there were dozens of little mouse carcasses littering the enclosure. The birds were picking them up and running around strutting and looking at their own reflections. It was a little morbid I guess but more interesting than anything. I wonder if they see their reflections as themselves and if they were observing themselves holding the mice.
