Plantain-Eaters

Eastern Grey Plantain-eaters are big birds. They are a species of Turaco, all of which are renowned for eating bananas. I’ve never seen them eat a plantain or a banana for that matter but they do eat a lot of other things. They are regular visitors to our garden and have a strange call which consists of loud nasal sounds which culminate in a manic laughing sound.
