The tropical regions of Africa with their dense forest like vegetation are home to an amazing array of birdlife that is exquisite in colour and diversity. Much of it though inhabits the forest canopies making viewing difficult. This purple-crested turaco, ventured down briefly to the ground to drink from a small forest pool before flying away into the shadows of the tree tops.
