Wreathed hornbill

Wreathed hornbill

Rhyticeros undulatus

The wreathed hornbill, also known as the bar-pouched wreathed hornbill, is a species of hornbill native to forests in northeast India, Bhutan, mainland Southeast Asia and the Greater Sundas in Indonesia. It is 75–100 cm long. Males weigh from 1.8 kg to 3.65 kg, and females weigh from 1.36 kg to 2.7 kg . Both sexes are similar to the respective sexes of the closely related plain-pouched hornbill, but the wreathed hornbill can be recognized by the dark bar on the lower throat . Though commonly considered monotypic, evidence suggests some geographical variation in the appearance.
