Great Feathers

At a nature conservatory, I found some unusual birds not native to the United States. One of the most colorful, was this Red-Crested Turaco, a native of Africa. They are so abundant in Africa that they are considered a pest, yet being able to see them up close and personal here in New York, was a real treat. The call of the Turaco sounds like “g’way”, which is why they are often referred to as go-away birds.
