Description

Trumpeter Hornbill under large glass dome. It is remarkable for the extent of its casque, which reaches nearly to the end of the bill. It frequents the forests of Zambia and lives in small flocks and is uncommon as a Victorian specimen due to the fact it is a shy bird and difficult to hunt.
