January 29, 2017 – White-crowned Hornbill, Asian White-crested Hornbill, Long-crested Hornbill, or White-crested Hornbill (Aceros comatus)

These hornbills are found in parts of Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and possibly Cambodia. They eat a variety of small animals, including birds, lizards, snakes, insects, and arthropods, along with fruit. Groups of three to eight birds, usually a breeding pair with several helpers, hold territories. As in other hornbill species, breeding females seal themselves into tree cavities, leaving a small hole for the males and helpers to pass food through. They don’t leave the nest until the chicks fledge.
