#3 Serengeti - Southern ground hornbill

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 3 November 2018 in Animal & Insect.

The southern ground hornbill, is the largest species of hornbill.
It is listed as endangered due to large scale clearing of the bird’s specialised habitat for agriculture, along with its exceedingly slow reproductive rate. We were fortunate to see quite a few of these large and distinctive birds.

Again a new acquaintance for me. Even though television today is telling things from every corner of the globe, it has never seen anything. It's great that we have Aminus3
