#StrangerDanger : The female red-billed hornbill protects her young against intruders by building a wall across the opening of her nest. She then seals herself and her chicks into this 'cocoon' -- and no doubt brandishes her bold red bill in warning at any potential intruder! #redalert ❌⁣ ⁣ Location: Samburu National Park⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #redbilledhornbill #hornbill #birdbehaviour #samburunationalpark #birdsofafrica

Red-billed Hornbill
Good morning! This is a red billed hornbill taken in The Gambia. I saw over 100 species of birds on my recent trip - it's a great birding destination. #redbilledhornbill #birds #bird #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #best_birds #best_birds_of_world #best_birds_of_ig #birdwatching #birds_adored
Do you know #zazu from the Lion King? He is the most famous hornbill of all time, inspired after the african species African red-billed hornbill (pictures) and Southern yellow-billed hornbill. Here's what he would look like if he was a real bird! Let me tell you he would speak just as much as in the #disney movie, hornbills are very chatty 😉 I can also tell you that because of #globalwarming , in some places, those birds are struggling to reproduce. A study led in the #kalaharidesert on the #yellowbilledhornbill shows that the the warmer it's getting, the more time they spend cooling down, and so the less time they have to feed themselves and their chicks. You don't want Zazu to disappear? Then it's #timetoact ! 💪🐣🌍 #hornbill #redbilledhornbill #bird #africanbird #famousbird #africanwildlife #savezazu #zazou #natgeoyourshot Shot taken in the #moagalakwenariverreserve , #mogalakwenaresearchcentre
A somewhat different edit, but this red billed hornbill truly comes alive😍 . Edit - @francois11prinsloo Photo - @rudieprinsloo1 . INTERESTING FACT😬 . The red-bill lives in open savanna, woodland and thorn scrub in sub-Saharan Africa. It is an omnivore, eating fruit, insects and small animals. Hornbills are named because the shape of their bill reminded early people of cattle horns. The hornbill's first two neck vertebrae are fused to support its large bill. Zazu, a character in the animated film The Lion King is an African red-billed hornbill . . . . . . #nature #natureporn #naturelover #naturephotography #beautiful #stunning #breathtaking #redbilledhornbill #thelionking #lionking #zazu #photo #photography #photographer #photooftheday #picoftheday #instafollow #instanature #amazing #southafrica #bird #dark #edit #instalike #wow #amazing_shots #amazing_captures #comment #share @southafrica @aboutsouthafrica @nature_photobook @___darkinsta___ @natgeo @natgeochannel @wildglobe @wildlife @natgeosafari @amazingworld.hd @amazingvievv @capture @nature

I can see you down there! A curious Northern Red-Billed Hornbill hops to a lower branch and watches me with my camera, waiting for me to put down the fresh-cooked rice in my hands. I don't know about you guys, but when I see a hornbill my first thought is "Emo Toucan" 😅.

This Red-billed Hornbill kept a close on eye me as I passed him. These are omnivores, eating fruit, insects and small animals. They use their large bill for digging in the earth. #birds_nature #birds #birding #bird_watchers_daily #bird_lovers #birdman #birder #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #birdlife #birdwatching #bird_brilliance #birdshots #birdsofinstagram #birds_perfection #birdsextreme #hornbills #redbilledhornbill #naturephotography #nature #naturelovers

Tanzanian Red-billed Hornbill (Color). These are usually social birds, although I only saw this one. They have interesting nesting behavior. When the female is ready to incubate the eggs she and the male seal her into the nest with the eggs by making a wall of mud, food remains and droppings, leaving only a small hole for the male to pass food to her, and eventually the chicks. When the chicks outgrow the sealed nest the female knocks the wall down, then she and the male build a new wall, not sealed off, and both parents feed the growing chicks . . . . . . #tanzania #tarangire #tarangirenationalpark #bird #birdsofinstagram #redbilledhornbill #africa #wild #wildlife #nature #wildlifephotography #thisiswhywildeye #wildeyesa #safari
Red Billed Hornbill These guys give off a pretty menacing look, and it doesn’t help that they can reach up to 17 inches long! I had a lot of fun drawing this beautiful bird, and I’m so eager to draw more! #art #artwork #create #drawing #sketch #redbilledhornbill #hornbill #bird

I do like the Red-billed Hornbill, so here’s another. This one caught this caterpillar and presented it to me for approval, as I sat in the car. I didn’t bargain for the grub. . #dslrphotography #redbilledhornbill #pilanesberg #pilanesbergnationalpark #caterpillar #bird #birdgotfood
A pair of Red-billed Hornbills to go into the bar mosaic that I'm currently working on for a private game lodge. I just can't decide whether the hornbill should be eating a tick or ladybird... the ladybird is prettier but I love these sweet little beetles and I don't like the idea of one getting eaten... while I must admit that I have much less of a warm feeling towards a tick! What do you think?

A sleepy Southern Red-billed Hornbill (Tockus rufirostris) - Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa⠀ ⠀ We stayed at the fabulous Makanyane Safari Lodge located within Madikwe Game Reserve, North West Province, South Africa close to the border with Botswana. The reserve offers the ‘Big 5” in a malaria free environment.⠀ ⠀ The unfenced lodge has just eight luxurious, secluded suites catering for just 16 guest, so you are assured personal attention from the fantastic, friendly and knowledgeable staff. ⠀ ⠀ Great game viewing is offered and with the lodge being unfenced you often get really close wildlife encounters.⠀ ⠀ #redbilledhornbill #madikwe #makanyanesafarilodge #birdsofsouthafrica #sabirding #africanature #bird #birdfreaks #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #birdlover #igbirds #igbird #birdphotography #ic_nature #igbirdwatchers #igbirdwatching #ig_discover_birdslife #ig_discover_wildlife #igphotography #ignature #instanaturefriends #nature #Nature_brilliance #naturelovers #naturephotography #nuts_about_birds #Wildlife #wildlifephotography

Everyone: You let your trainer shut the door all the way the first day you work on it??? Zazu: What, like it’s hard? 💁🏻‍♀️ #sosmartandbrave #bestbird #zazu #redbilledhornbill #myheartanimal
Food is Served 🍽 Red-Billed Hornbill They are insectivores 🦗🐞 and carnivorous 🦎🦇 but can also feed from fruits like berries. Hornbills use their huge bills to dig and maneuver objects on the ground to access their prey. The large bill also helps to maintain the prey away from vulnerable areas like their eyes and face.
Some awesome bird sightings today! Plus many birds of prey, just not at that level where i am confident enough to identify them correctly! #whitebackedvulture #redbackedshrike #jacobincuckoo #redbilledhornbill #hornbill #guineafowl #helmetedguineafowl #birding #birds #birdsofsouthafrica #birdphotography #birdlovers #birder #birdwatching #birdlife #birdofinstagram
