The Go-away birds

The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology has interesting article on the Go-away Birds

The Go-away birds, Corythaixoides, are a genus in the turaco family (Musophagidae). Unlike many of the brighter forest-dwelling turacos, these are birds of African open country and have drab grey and white plumage.

These birds get their common name from their typical calls. These include a series of grumpy yelps, and the classic nasal “go-waaay” call.

Listen to the birds and read the article at  The Go-away birds
