About the White-Crested Hornbill
The white crested hornbill is a long-tailed black and white bird with a distinctive, fuzzy white crown. Both male and female have the white crown, but their coloring differs elsewhere: the male hornbill’s throat and neck are white, while the female's throat and neck are black. African crested hornbills are found in the central and western regions of Africa. They have a distinctive loud, hollow pigeon-like call, holding the first note the longest.

Hide the Hornbill
After mating, the male hornbill will seal the female in a tree cavity with only a small, beak shaped opening. It then becomes the male’s responsibility to make sure the female and her young have a healthy supply of food.
