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 the 4th row photo). Note the dark bill of the immature on the right 4th row photo. The upper three photos were taken in Mikumi NP, courtesy of Per Holmen; the 4th & 5th row photos, also taken in Mikumi, are courtesy of Paul Oliver. The other photos were taken in the Suledo FR.
