Description

The wrinkled hornbill gains its common name from its casque, a prominent bony crest on top of its large bill which is wrinkled and ridged. Both male and female has casque but smaller in female than male. As for the male, it has a white head and neck with short black crest, white throat pouch and reddish casque on top and base of its bill. While the female has a black head and neck, blue throat pouch and skin around the eyes. The wrinkled hornbill's diet consists mainly of fruits, in particular figs and drupes such as cherries, peaches and plum. It is thinly distributed and never in big flocks. It occurs in primary evergreen and swamp forests up to 1,000 m above sea level. Habitat loss poses the greatest threat to the wrinkled hornbill (BirdLife International, 2017).
