Red Crested Turaco (Medium)

Tauraco erythrolophus

#The Unsociable

Popular for their bright colours and prominent crest, the Turaco gets its vibrancy from just two pigments. Both pigments contain copper, which is unique to the bird. The call of the bird sounds a little like a jungle monkey and has given it the nickname ‘the Go-Away Bird’, as it sounds very similar to ‘g’way’.
