Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

A medium-sized black-and-white hornbill with a big downcurved “banana” bill. Males have a larger bill and pinkish bare skin on the throat; females have a smaller bill and black bare skin. Found locally in dry savanna and thornscrub. The call is a long series of deep clucks that rises and falls. Easily separated from similar black-and-white hornbills in its range by the all-yellow bill.
