    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. They actually have copper in their feather pigments, which cannot be found in any other animals!

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.

A mix of shiny and improbable white and hot pink (turaco). It looks like a vintage toy from the mid-20th century.
