Hornbills also have a very unique living practice whereby they rely on other species such as the Woodpecker and tree insects or the natural process of the tree to build holes within the tree or branches. These tree holes will then be selected by the female Hornbill and evaluated whether it is a suitable habitat for her to build a nest for her babies. A female Hornbill can produce up to six eggs during her breeding period. The suitable tree hole will then be covered in her faeces

food waste or soil until a single small hole is left for the male Hornbill to provide food.
