Hornbills
Hornbills are broad-winged and long-tailed, and the larger species make quite long flights from one patch of forest to another in their search for trees in fruit. The wings of some species are very noisy, like the 'whoosh, whoosh' of a steam engine, often the first indication that hornbills are flying overhead. All the hornbills have a distinctively shaped horny protuberance or casque above the bill. They nest in holes in the trunks of trees, and seal up most of the entrance hole with mud, thus imprisoning the female during incubation, presumably as a protection against monkeys. (Derek Holmes & Stephen Nash, The birds of Sumatra and Kalimantan, 1990)
