Species Description
The Plain-Pouched Hornbill is found in the mixed deciduous and evergreen forests and lowlands of southeast Asia, predominantly in Thailand, Burma and Malaysia. Recognizable by their bulging yellow gular pouch, this hornbill eats primarily fruits that it forages for in the canopy. However, it will occasionally descend to the forest floor, where it has been known to take insects and small vertebrates.
