Knysna lourie (Turaco) This lourie comes to our bird table several times a day, knowing exactly what times the food goes out. If we are late, he comes onto the verandah and waits at the table!

The Knysna Turaco , or, in South Africa, Knysna Lourie, is a large turaco, one of a group of African near-passerine birds. It is a resident breeder in the mature evergreen forests of southern and eastern South Africa, and Swaziland. It was formerly sometimes considered to be a subspecies of the Green Turaco of West Africa. The Livingstone's and Schalow's Turacos were once considered subspecies.

This species lays two eggs in a shallow platform nest made from sticks and placed in a tree.. more
