A large turaco with blue upperparts, a red and yellow underside, and a broad crest, this species lives in tropical rain forest. Here it feeds principally on forest fruits. In the trees the bird is agile and active, hopping and running along branches. Its flight consists of little more than downward glides and swoops, and it usually gains height by leaping between branches. Habitats include lowland forests edges, river valley forests, mountain forests, and isolated woodlands in savanna (tropical grassland). This shy bird is not easily seen among the foliage, but small groups often gather and can be detected by their habit of calling in chorus, sometimes of several minutes. The chorus begins with plaintive cries, followed by a series of "kok-kok" notes, and dies down with deeper, vibrating calls.

Nest: A thin platform of dry twigs with a shallow central hollow, lined with finer twigs, and placed high in a tree.

Distribution: Tropical forests in W. and C. Africa.

Remark: This is the largest species of turaco.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
