Fruits and blossoms.
The green turaco's head and neck are bright grass-green and the wings, tail and back are a much darker green with a glossy violet sheen. This bird lives in pairs or small groups and is shy and wary. It spends most of its time in the trees but descends to the ground to drink from forest pools in the dry season. It is agile on foot, running and hopping along swiftly.
Nest building is seen in late June and mid August. The well-grown fledgling comes out of the nest in mid-late October.
No conservation measures currently needed.
