Red-Billed Hornbill

Tockus erythrorhynchus

Females make nests high in trees, into which they seal themselves with mud and feces. Only a small slit remains, through which the dependent females are fed by their mates. These ground-foraging omnivores sometimes partner with mongoose so they can warn each other of approaching predators.
