VIDEO – The beauty of hornbills in the forest reserves of Thailand

News outlet The Nation has the pleasure of inviting you on a video tour through the natural abundance of Thailand’s pristine forests, where several species of hornbills live together and forage in nature reserves.

The abundance of hornbills is an indicator of the natural integrity of the forest. Thailand is home to 13 species of hornbills, named for their distinctive features. These are the great hornbill, the eastern pied hornbill, the crowned hornbill, the common hornbill, the red-necked hornbill, the helmeted hornbill, the black hornbill, the bushy crested hornbill, the wrinkled hornbill, the Tickell’s brown hornbill, the brown hornbill of Austen, the rhinoceros and the white-crowned hornbill.

This video from Thai newspaper “The Nation” reveals the hornbills in their preserved forests in provinces across the country – Uthai Thani, Phetchabun, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Kanchanaburi and Tak.

It’s nice to know that each species of hornbill has its own unique ecology and habitat.

Hornbills are omnivorous birds that take full advantage of the rich richness of the forest by eating fruits, insects and also small animals, thus the hornbills preserve the forest by spreading seeds and controlling the population of small animals that destroy trees

Hornbills play an important role in the ecosystem and are a crucial indicator of the natural integrity of the forest.
