Hello there! I wish I could remember the name of this bird, but I can’t. Doesn’t he/she look cheerful. Photo taken in Botswana, 2010.

I think it’s called the Grey Lourie or Go Away Bird (it has call that sounds like “go away”)
I do remember hearing that sound. I can still hear it now if I concentrate. So many amazing animals from this part of the world.
looks like a cross from a pigeon and a cockatoo, Weird! Awesome!
That’s a pretty good description.
What a cutie! 🙂
What a pretty bird!
I agree. Thanks
Seems a tad shy, turning away from the camera. 🙂 Nice!
it’s a grey turaco or which used to be known as a grey lourie, and often known as the go away bird for their call and habit of warning of the presence of man/predators to other animals.
He did his job, there was a leopard! And us humans, of course.
Beautiful. Looks inquisitive yet mysterious!
Yes! He wasn’t so sure about us…and there was a leopard nearby
Cool nameless bird!
Suspicious looking bird 😉
He wasn’t sure about us either
Definitely got the pigeon/cockatoo thing going on.
She’s so poised and charming. Awesome!
Not sure why I said “she.” I don’t know if it’s male or female.
I don’t either 😉
i thought she too-muted colors and the hairdo i think. lovely bird though.
And she has a great personality.
