GETTING TO KNOW THE SOUTHERN GROUND HORNBILLS

The John Ball Zoo has a pair of Southern Ground Hornbills in the African Veldt exhibit near the back of the zoo. You many also see Eastern Bongo, a White Backed Vulture, some Egyptian Geese and Guinea Fowl, but I’m betting you will probably remember the Hornbills the best. They are very active in our exhibit whether chasing the other birds in the exhibit, chipmunks and any other animal that found its way into the yard, or digging things up.
