LIKE MOST OTHER HORN BILLS THE MALE SEALS THE FEMALE INTO A HOLLOW TREE TRUNK AND FEEDS HER WHILE BREEDING

HORN BILLS

Insectivorous and frugivorous birds with large de-curved 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.
