  1. family bucerotidae

    Family Bucerotidae, commonly known as Hornbills, is a family of bird species that are characterized by their long, down-curved bills, often with a colorful, casque on top. The family consists of approximately 60 different species that are native to Africa and Asia. Hornbills are typically large birds, with species ranging in size from the Black Dwarf Hornbill, at 102 grams (3.6 oz) and 30 cm (1 foot), to the Southern Ground Hornbill, at up to 6.2 kg (13.6 lbs) and 1.2 m (4 feet). They are omnivorous birds, feeding on fruits, insects and small animals. They cannot swallow food caught at the tip of their beak as their tongues are too short to manipulate it, so they toss it back to the throat with a jerk of the head.
