The fourth and last family is the Upupidae or hoopoes, distantly related to the Phoeniculidae, or wood-hoopoes, of tropical Africa and the Bucerotidae, or hornbills, of tropical Africa and Asia.
The hornbills, members of the family Bucerotidae, have a bill comparable with the toucan's in size and shape but the birds are not related: while the toucans belong to the order of the Piciformes the hornbills are members of the Coraciiformes (like the kingfishers and bee-eaters).
