Exciting news from the ground hornbill habitat! Blue has laid an egg, and we're hopeful for another successful hatch. It's been almost one year since Everest hatched, and we can't wait to see if his parents welcome a new chick soon. #hornbill #egg #birdnest #conservation #zoo #marylandzoo #groundhornbill
