About the Silvery-Cheeked Hornbill
Up to 3 pounds
Fruit, insects and sometimes small mammals, birds and reptiles.
They're found in lowland and coastal forests throughout Mozambique, Zimbabwe and northeastern South Africa.
Silvery-cheeked hornbills form in pairs or small family groups of three to four. Flocks of 20 have been observed at a feeding site, and sometimes 100 birds will gather together for a communal roost. They spend most of their time in the forest canopy but will descend to the ground for dust baths and to gather mud for nests.
