Yellow-Billed Hornbill Beauty
I photographed this bird in Botswana while on a photography safari in the Kalahari area. Yellow-billed hornbills feed mainly on the ground, where they forage for seeds, small insects, spiders and scorpions. This hornbill is a common, widespread resident of the dry thorn fields and broad-leafed woodlands. This hornbill is a medium-sized bird and is characterized by a long yellow and down-curved beak. This beak is huge in comparison to its body and can account for up 1/6th of the entire body length.
