Rusty or Philippine Hornbill (Buceros hydrocorax) or Kalaw
Buceros hydroorax, also known as the Philippine Horned Courser and Kalaw (pronounced kah-lau), is a large horned bird native to the Philippines, where it is found in ripe mainland and sturgeon forest on 11 islands: Lucion and Marinduque (breed Hydrokorax), Samar, Leyte, Bohol, Panaon, Biliran, Calicoan and Buad (breed Semigaleatus), Dinagat, Siargao, Mindanao (plus Balut, Bucas and Talicud) and Basilan (breed Mindanensis).
They are still found in local areas, especially in the Sierra Madre of Luzon, but continue to face considerable pressures from hunters and extensive losses of habitats. Beak of the nominated sub-species is all reddish, while beaks of the sub-species semi-galeatus and minanensis are light golden in colour on the distally half. Like other Rhinoceros, the female seals itself in the nest-cave, where it places the eggs and remains most or the entire Nistperiode with the adolescent boys.
With some types the small man assists with the seal from outside the Nisthöhle. Males feed the nestling and the females through a small vertically slot in the closed opening of the nests. Red list of endangered IUCN plant and animal life..... "Co-operative red-horn bird farming on the island of Mindanao, Philippines".
