They usually nest in the natural habitats like holes in the trees and other small rocks. Their large beaks are mainly used for the purpose of catching its prey, constructing its own nest, fighting against its own enemies and the purpose of preening.
- They have the black plumage and sometimes it is grey, white and brown. They have the binocular vision which helps them to catch the prey and handle it with the help of their tip of the bill.
