Grey Go-away-bird

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Grey Go-away-bird (Corythaixoides concolor), also known as Grey Lourie, Grey Loerie, or Kwêvoël, is a southern African bird of uniform grey with black beak and strikingly pink gape. It is widespread in savanna woodland, a clumsy flier though extremely agile in clambering through tree crowns. It has a distinctive loud alarm call "quare", fancifully sounding like "Go-away". The crest is raised when excited.

Its diet is mainly fruit (such as wild figs and berries), flowers and buds, leaves, termites and snails. Its habitat is dry open savanna woodlands, farms, parks, and suburban gardens, often near water.

Hello Bungbing
Nice photo of this very interesting bird with good composition and wonderful colours.

Buen manejo de la luz y bien captados esos difíciles colores
y más desde ese ángulo de disparo. Preciosa el ave y como es
habitual, rara para mí.

Bonjour Bungbing,
Excellent angle de prise de vue créant une très belle opposition avec l'arrière-plan.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
