The yellow-billed oxpecker (Buphagus africanus) gets its name from its habit of landing on large mammals, such as buffalo, wildebeest, antelopes and cattle, to eat the insects and ticks that live on them. It also likes eating blood and will use its sharp bill to keep wounds open so that it can feed. It is native to the savannah of Sub-Saharan Africa from Senegal east to Sudan. The yellow-billed oxpecker nests in tree holes lined with hair plucked from livestock.
