Need Some Help

Need some help here. This bird looks like an Africanized version of a twisted, oversided toucan on the prowl. Anyone know what it is? It's ugly - start there. I need to know so I can make sure not to travel through whatever environs it infests.

Thanks for the photo and the mystery, Mike.

UPDATE: With the aid of two readers, 'anonymous' and Mark, we now know this creature to be a ground hornbill. Thanks for the ID.

Hmm. A ground hornbill. I'm going to have to look into that. Thanks.
