Abyssinian Ground Hornbill
The Abyssinian ground hornbill is a large bird found in parts of Africa such as Ethiopia and Kenya. These birds are known for their distinctive bright red throat skin and black feathers. They feed mainly on insects and small vertebrates, and play an important role in their ecosystems by controlling pest populations. Unfortunately, these birds are listed as vulnerable due to habitat loss and hunting. Conservation efforts including captive breeding and habitat restoration are underway to protect these unique birds and their habitats.
