A thing of beauty

This gorgeous creature is our unofficial new pet. It comes to our condo with a bunch of it's friends in the evenings to snack on the little cookie crumbs that our security guard leaves for them. Sometimes they come in twos, sometimes in fours. Some days they don't show up at all. Upon some google-based research, I found out that these birds are the "Oriental pied-hornbills" and are listed as 'Critically Endangered' in the Red List of threatened animals of Singapore. This makes our cladestine chance meetings with these birds even more precious!
