The hornbill is a curious looking bird found in mature lowland forests. Not as strikingly colourful as other kind of birds, most Hornbills have black, brown, white or gray plumage with long, curved bills. Some have large protuberant casques on top of the bill. Males have red eyes while females have white eyes. Hornbills are usually omnivorous, but some eat almost wholly meat (such as lizards, frogs and salamanders) or fruit. They make their nests in large hollow trees.
