The African piping hornbill is a small species of hornbill native to central and western Africa. The female lays eggs in a tree hole, that is blocked off during incubation with a mixture made of mud, sticks, and fruit pulp. There is only one narrow aperture, just big enough for the male to transfer food with his beak to the mother and the chicks.
