Sumba Hornbill
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Order: Coraciiformes
Family: Bucerotidae
Synonyms: Aceros everetti

The Sumba Hornbill, Rhyticeros everetti is a medium-sized, approximately 70cm long, blackish hornbill. The male has a large yellowish bill with red patch at base, serrated casque, dark reddish-brown on crown and nape, and paler throat. The female has an entirely black plumage.

An Indonesian endemic, the Sumba Hornbill is distributed to semi-evergreen forests of Sumba in Lesser Sunda Islands. It is uncommon and found in the lowland to altitude up to 950 metres.

The Sumba Hornbill is a monogamous species. The diet consists mainly of fruits.

Due to ongoing habitat loss, limited range, small population size and overhunting in some areas, the Sumba Hornbill is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. It is listed on Appendix II of CITES.
