Home Alphabetical Maps Taxonomic Links/Resources



The main identifying feature of the pale-billed hornbill which is otherwise similar to the African grey hornbill is the pale yellow bill with orange tip; the male has a longer casque than the female (on the left in upper photo). Note the dark bill of the immature in the right 3rd rowphoto. The upper two photos were taken in Mikumi NP (1-16), courtesy of Per Holmen; also taken in Mikumi (3-11), the 3rd & 4th row photos are courtesy of Paul Oliver. The other four photos were taken in the Suledo Forest (5th row left, 8-14; others, 4-09).
