    Guinea Turaco - a brightly colored bird with a large head crest found in Central and Western Africa. They are a member of the Turaco family, which contains many other brightly colored species. They feed on flowers, fruits, and buds. Turacos are the only birds to have true red and green pigmentation? They actually have copper in their feather pigments, which cannot be found in any other animals!
