MALE TRUMPETER HORNBILL – Bycanistes bucinater – Gewone boskraai
Insectivorous and frugivorous birds with large decurved bills, sometimes with a horny casque on the upper mandible.
Arboreal or terrestrial feeders, or both, they nest in holes in trees (among rocks in a few species) and, in most species, the female seals herself in during incubation.
Their flight is heavy and undulating with periods of gliding.
