Green (Guinea) Turaco. South Africa. Learned about this guy in ornithology. One of the few birds to have green microstructures. Most of the time, a green bird is created through blue microstructure of feathers and yellow pigments!
Great Blue Turaco. Turaco Birds make up the bird family Musophagidae (literally "banana-eaters"), which includes plantain-eaters and go-away-birds. In southern Africa both turacos and go-away-birds are commonly known as louries. Musophagids often have prominent crests and long tails; the turacos are noted for peculiar and unique pigments giving them their bright green and red feathers.
