The rhinoceros hornbill’s peculiar prancing

A bird with a spring in its step!

Although it has large wings with a wingspan of about 1.50 m, the rhinoceros hornbill rarely flies. Living up in the canopy amongst the trees of the South East Asian jungle, this giant prefers to hop from branch to branch, only using its wings to glide and to steer itself.

« A particular favourite was the tropical hot house where a succession of breathtaking and colourful birds walked and flew across our path and armadillos and mouse deer surprised and delighted us. »

Beauval Nature builds artificial nests for hornbills in Borneo

Hornbills build their nests in tree trunk hollows and therefore depend on large trees. The conversion of forests to palm groves for palm oil production therefore decreases the number of available nesting sites. 

In collaboration with the HUTAN association, the Beauval Nature association supports a project to protect hornbills in Borneo. The project’s objectives are: to study the quality of the habitat; to identify areas that are conducive to foraging and reproduction; and to install artificial nests to encourage hornbill reproduction.
