Hornbill Week: India’s Incredible Hornbills

Malabar Grey Hornbill By Shashank Dalvi

The Malabar Grey Hornbill Ocyceros griseusis endemic to the Western Ghats. The Malabar Grey though looks very similar to the Indian Grey, it has a deep yellow bill and lacks a casque. It has a peculiar loud squealing, laughing cry. They are found in small groups particularly in habitats with good tree cover. Largely frugivorous, they also occasionally feed on small vertebrates.
