Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources






The northern red-billed hornbill was recently recognized as separate from the Tanzanian endemic, the Tanzanian red-billed (or Ruaha) hornbill. The left upper photo shows both for comparison. The left 4th row photo (Tarangire, 1-08) is courtesy of Mike Peterson. The pair in the acacia tree was in Samburu-Kenya (1-17), courtesy of Karine Van der Vurst. The 2nd and 3rd row photos were taken in Mkomazi; the others including the juvenile were taken in Tarangire.
