The Ground Hornbill

The Ground Hornbill

On a recent trip to Skukuza in the Kruger National Park we were lucky enough to come across a pair of ground hornbills. Possibly one of the strangest looking birds around. Eyelashes and red skin on a black background make for a nice contrast. They have very distinctive calls “oomph oooomph” and are always a treat to observe in the wild.
