Named for its call, the trumpeter hornbill (Bycanistes bucinator) is a resident of the tropical evergreen forests of Burundi, Mozambique, Botswana, Congo, Kenya, the Caprivi strip of Namibia and eastern South Africa, where it feeds on fruits and large insects. Fruit is not as common as insects, so they fly long distances in search of fruit-bearing trees. The Trumpeter hornbill, like all hornbills, has a familiar casque on the top of its bill. This extension of the bill is larger in males than in females. The plumage is mostly black, but has some white or gray as well. The skin around the eye ranges from bright pink to dark purple. The feet and bill are mainly black.
