The Bushy-crested Hornbill is the least colourful of the hornbills. Smallish in size (up to 88 cm), it is found in lowland and hill forests of Peninsula Malaysia, Borneo and Sumatra.

The males have red iris (black in females, and blue in immature birds). The bill is black in males, and whitish in females. In the wild, they are normally found in packs of 5 to 15 birds.
