Did you know?

Wrinkled hornbills breed high up in tree hollows. After their nest had been prepared and eggs have been laid, the female is walled in the hollow with a sludge made of mud, wood, food and faeces. The male gets the building material. Finally, only a small gap is left through which the female and the young are being fed. When the young have fledged, that wall is broken down.
