Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Atypical and beautiful multi-colored turaco. Like other turacos, shows large crimson wing patches in flight. Found in montane forest and secondary growth. Acts like a typical turaco, bouncing through the trees, and flying occasionally with short bursts of wingbeats and long glides. Found in pairs and sometimes small groups. Gives “kow” calls like other turacos, but also makes odd squirrel-like scolding calls and a 3-part “laser-gun” call.
