Hornbills are exotic birds found in tropical areas of Africia, Asia and one species in Papua New Guinea. They have long, down-curved bills which are usually brightly-colored. Hornbills nest in the cavities of trees. They are an important part of local folklore and traditions in Arunachal Pradesh, a state of Northeast India.
