Multicellular organisms having cells bound by a plasma membrane and organized into tissue and specialized tissue systems that permit them to either move about in search of food or to draw food toward themselves. Unable to make their own food within themselves, as photosynthetic plants do, they rely on consuming preformed food. They possess a nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, enabling them to receive environmental stimuli and to respond with specialized movements.
Members of a family of 14 genera and about 55 species of tropical birds with a distinguishing bony casque, or helmet, surmounting their prominent bill, which is supported by powerful neck muscles and fused vertebrae. The large bill assists in fighting, preening, constructing nests, and catching prey.
