Sulawesi Wrinkled Hornbill

9 Comments
1K Views
The Knobbed Hornbill or Sulawesi Wrinkled Hornbill, Aceros cassidix, occurs on the huge Indonesian island of Sulawesi, and is one of the most colourful of the world's hornbills. The yellow and red colour on the bill, head and neck come from pigments secreted by the bird's preen gland ... in effect it is using make-up! Watercolour.
