Hornbills (Bucerotidae) are a family of bird found in tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia and Melanesia.
The Yellow-billed Hornbill is a common resident in South Africa. They are commonly seen in scrub and dry woodland areas. We saw this cheeky bird in the Kruger National Park. He wanted to join us for breakfast! ;-)
The Yellow-billed Hornbill is a medium sized bird, with length between 48 to 60 cm, characterized by a long yellow beak with a casque (only in males).
The skin around the eyes and in the malar stripe is vivid red-coloured. White belly, grey neck, and black back with abundant white spots and stripes.
