SPECIES INFO

The Mindoro Tarictic Hornbill (Penelopides mindorensis), sometimes shortened to Mindoro Hornbill, is a species of hornbill in the Bucerotidae family. It is endemic to forests on Mindoro in the Philippines. As is the case with all Philippine tarictic hornbills, it has been considered a subspecies of P. panini. It is the only tarictic hornbill where both sexes are creamy-white and black. The sexes are very similar, and primarily differ in the colour of the ocular ring (pinkish-white in the male, blue in the female).

The Mindoro Tarictic Hornbill is threatened by habitat loss, and is consequently considered endangered by IUCN
