Species Description
The Yellow-casqued Hornbill lives in the coastal rainforests of West Africa. This large hornbill lives mostly in the canopy, but will make occasional trips to the forest floor. It subsists primarily on fruit, which it consumes whole after harvesting it from the foliage with its large beak; given its diet, it is also an important disperser of seeds. The Yellow-casqued Hornbill is a very social bird and, while generally sedentary, it will make local movements in response to fruit availability.
