The crowned hornbill (Lophoceros alboterminatus) is an African hornbill.
It is a medium-sized bird, 50–54 centimetres (20–21 in) in length, and is characterized by its white belly and black back and wings. The tips of the long tail feathers are white. The eyes are yellow; the beak is red and presents a stocky casque on the upper mandible. In females, the casque is smaller. The crowned hornbill can be distinguished from the similar Bradfield’s hornbill by its shorter beak.
The world population of this species has not been estimated but it appears to be quite large and declining only very slowly. In view of this, the species is not considered as threatened with extinction.
