Southern Red-billed Hornbill

Tockus rufirostris


This red-billed hornbill was spotted at sunrise near the west entrance to Kruger National Park in South Africa.


The habitat is flat thornveld, at the edge of sparse woodland. Winter weather was about 45 degrees F.


The habitat became even sparser as we waited for the park to open as a troop of elephants came through and knocked/pulled down a small grove of thorny trees.
