Wildlife photographers have captured photos of rufous-necked hornbills in southwest China's Yunnan Province, the first photos snapped in decades.

Two males and one female bird were sighted Sunday in a forest area in Yingjiang County, located more than 2,000 meters above the sea level, according to a local bird watching association.

Habitats of rufous-necked hornbills in China are mainly in Yunnan and its neighboring Tibet Autonomous Region, said Han Lianxian, an ornithologist with the Southwest Forestry University, adding that the last photos of them appearing in Yunnan dated to the 1980s.

The photos provide the latest evidence of the species still inhabiting the region, Han noted.

Zeng Xiangle, president of the bird watching association in Yingjiang, said they will conduct further research on the distribution and breeding of the birds in the county in a bid to better study and protect the species.

Rufous-necked hornbills, with their iconic big yellow beak, are under the highest-level protection in China.
