The beautiful Knysna Turaco by chrishpetersen

The hidden beauty of the Knysna Turaco found only in South Africa.

It is estimated that less than 10,000 of this species remain in the wild. Most are found in the coastal forest, especially near Knysna, South Africa.

Despite their bright colors, they blend in perfectly with the high canopy where they perch … making them hard to find, and even harder to photograph!

Their bright red wings are only seen in flight … captured in the next photo post.
