Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Spectacular green, crested turaco. Shows large crimson wing patches in flight. Found in forest and dense woodland. 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 Livingstone’s and Knysna Turacos, but minimal overlap in range, and has a longer crest and a purplish tail.
