Toucans have disproportionately large bills that are light and spongy inside. These allow them to reach and pluck fruit from high twigs at the end of branches.

Many Hornbills have a disproportionately large "casque" on their horn-shaped bill. Hornbills also have physiological and behavioural differences to other birds. In addition to the casque (on some), they have their first two neck vertebrae fused to support bills, have long eyelashes and different kidneys. In all but Ground Hornbills, the female seals herself in a tree cavity with mud and sticks to incubate and raise young, leaving a small hole for the male to feed them.
