day three-hundred-and-eighteen - red-crested turaco

this is one heck of a cute bird

and a drawing that looks like it could be a logo for some kind of turaco society (...ahem).

these birds are african, despite their looks and name making them seem south american. they should definitely be hanging out with toucans and toucanets somewhere - they have no idea what they're missing!

other than knowing they are angolan and they eat fruit not much is known about these turacos. so i'd better finish my degree quick smart and start studying them.
