Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Spectacular green crested turaco. Shows large crimson wing patches in flight. Found in rainforest and gallery forest. Acts like a typical turaco, bouncing through the trees, and flying occasionally with short bursts of wingbeats and long glides. Call is a gruff, accelerating series of “kow” notes. Similar to Schalow’s and Guinea Turacos, but minimal overlap in range. Crest is shorter than that of Schalow’s Turaco and has a white tip, unlike that of Guinea Turaco.
