Wikipedia Article

The White-crowned Hornbill (Berenicornis comatus), also known as the White-crested Hornbill (leading to easy confusion with the African Tropicranus albocristatus), is a species of hornbill found in forests in the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra and Borneo. It is monotypic within the genus Berenicornis, but rarely the White-crested Hornbill is also included in this genus, whereas the White-crowned Hornbill sometimes is placed in Aceros instead. It is threatened by habitat loss.
