Southern Ground Hornbill

Bucorvus leadbeateri

These large, carnivorous birds run along the ground spearing insects, reptiles, and small mammals with their beaks. Mated pairs raise one chick at a time which stays with them for years, joining the family group alongside elder siblings. All members of the group cooperate in raising the chick.
