Violet Turaco; Violette Toerako; Musophaga Violacea

This shy bird prefers to hide high in the canopy. This makes photography difficult because of the many branches and leaves and also because of harsh light conditions with often extreme contrasts. Best chances for photographers come with places which abound with the food these birds like. Evidently we had this luck.
