Busy male Hornbill

Every spring, hornbills choose tree holes to breed their offspring.The female bird needs to be closed in the tree hole to lay eggs for more than 40 days. During this period, the male hornbill not only has to fill his stomach, but also needs to feed his wife and children in the tree hole. He is very busy.
