Wrinkled Hornbill

While they look similar, hornbills are not related to toucans.  They are adapted to a similar forest niche, but are from different parts of the world.  The wrinkled hornbill’s casque acts like a megaphone, making the bird’s calls louder. 

Wrinkled hornbills rely on undisturbed primary rainforest.  Illegal logging in protected areas can affect their population.
