Rufous Hornbill

As with other hornbills, females seal themselves within the nest cavity, where they lay the clutch and remain with the growing young for most or all of the nesting period. In some species the male helps with the sealing process from outside the nest cavity. The nestlings and female are fed by the male through a narrow vertical slit in the sealed nest opening.

I observed breeding activity at two Rufous Hornbill nests on the island of Mindanao, Philippines: one at Mt. Apo National Park near Davao City, Davao del Sur Province (7�l'N, 125�22'E) from 31 July to 25 Au- gust 1984; and the other at Lake Sebu, South Cotabato Province (6�12'N, 124�41'E) from 4 to 14 August 1985. Both sites are approximately 1,000 m in elevation. The primary forest vegetation is tropical lowland ever- green rain forest (Whitmore 1984) dominated by trees in the family Dipterocarpaceae (Lewis 1988). More

The colorful but rather creepy-looking Rufous Hornbill is a large species of hornbill endemic to the Philippines. It is also known as Philippine Hornbill and, locally, as Kalaw and occurs in primary, mature secondary and disturbed forests on 11 Philippine islands. It is still common locally, notably in the Sierra Madre of Luzon, but continues to suffer from substantial hunting pressure and widespread loss of habitat. More
