The Red-billed Hornbill is sometimes referred to as the Southern Red-billed Hornbill outside of South Africa. This is to distinguish it from other 'red-billed' hornbills found elsewhere.
This hornbill is not as common as its relative the Southern Yellow-billed Hornbill.
Red-billed Hornbills are normally seen by themselves or in pairs. They may also occasionally be seen in a small flock.
They eat insects, spiders, scorpions and seeds.
