Captured: The Kruger National Park, SOUTH AFRICA
Camera Nikon D50
Lens Sigma 70-300mm DG
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 females seals herself in during incubation.
Their flight is heavy and undulating with periods of gliding.
