Bushy-crested Hornbills, a very gregarious species, is very easy to see. Wreathed Hornbills and Plain-pouched Hornbills are frequently seen as well. Though difficult to see, the stunning White-crowned Hornbill also calls Khao Sok National Park its home. All of the hornbills found in Thailand are resident. Hornbills are primarily frugivorous (fruit eaters) though they will take small reptiles, insects, and even other smaller birds during molting or when rearing young. More

The range of the Bushy-crested Hornbill is from Myanmar through the Malay Peninsula to Sumatra and Borneo. It is resident from low elevations up to 1200 m, south to Johore in forests.
