Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Unusual gray turaco with a long tail and a bushy crest. White bars in the outer wing and white sides to the tail are conspicuous in floppy flight. Found in savanna, woodland, shrubby cultivation, and gardens. Usually in small groups. Loud and vocal. The call is a series of yelps that accelerate and become louder, usually given in a wild duet or chorus. Similar in shape to White-bellied Go-away-bird, but easily separated by its darker belly and pale-green or yellowish bill.
