Visayan Tarictic Hornbill

Penelopides Panini

One of the smaller Philippine hornbill found only in the remaining forest patches of Negros and Panay.

The female hornbill, like all species of hornbill, seals herself inside a tree cavity after mating, where she stays for three months. She lays and incubates her eggs inside the cavity, being fed by the male until the eggs hatch and her chicks are ready to fly.
