The White Thighed Hornbill is a species of hornbill in the bucerotidae family. The scientific name of the family refers to the shape of the bill “buceros” meaning “cow horn”. The White Thighed hornbill is about 71cm. The adult male has a large cream casque and yellowish bare skin round the eye, white belly and thighs and an all white tail with a black band. The adult female is similar but has a smaller bill and casque.

The immature White thighed Hornbills are duller than the adult birds with no casque on the bill. The young bird has a broad white band along the back of its wing like the black and white casqued hornbill.

The large bill assists the bird in fighting, preening and construction in addition to catching prey. White thighed Hornbills feed on fruits, seeds, invertebrates, small animals and birds.

The call of a White thighed Hornbill is a very dry and rasping long sequence of identical upslurs rrah-rrah-rrah which sometimes accelerates.
