White-crowned Hornbill

White-crowned Hornbill

Scientific name:
Order: Coraciiformes
Family: Bucerotidae

Also known as the White-crested Hornbill

The White-crowned Hornbill is a species of hornbill found in forests in the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo.

The most noticeable feature of this fantastically bizarre looking bird is its white crown feathers which erect in a spiky crest. The white-crowned hornbill also possesses an ornamental casque on top if its bill, characteristic of many hornbills.

I was looking up my old neighbor, Steve Liu, and I came across your site. I have NEVER seen better bird photos in my whole life.
You are some kind of bird photo genius. I am going to tell famous photographer, Victor Englebert to visit your site!
