Southern Ground Hornbill (Bucorvus leadbeateri)

A Critically Endangered species due to habitat loss and degradation, amoung other reasons. These are really nice birds, allowing humans, and other animals, certainly, to get really close. This couple and the juvenile, in the last photo, came right to the cars and began pecking the tires. They were very relaxed and no shy at all.
