Wreathed hornbills, self-quarantining birds

This 3 April 2020 video is about wreathed hornbills. These birds are originally from Asia.

In the video, bird keeper Maartje talks about the wreathed hornbills of Artis zoo in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Maartje says that wreathed hornbills are self-quarantining (like many people do during the coronavirus crisis) birds: as during breeding the female hornbills are isolated for 100 days, with just a small hole through which the males bring them food.
