Knysna turaco

tauraco corythaix

Description:

Livingstone's Turaco (Tauraco livingstonii)

Notes:

This bird was in a kind of bird sanctuary near the airport of Kobe Japan. I believe this species is found in Africa, but it is not native to Japan.

@auntnance, the white hairstyle is what tipped the scale for me, but never would have got it without your links--thanks again!

Yes a much better choice, rpsonak3
I was second-guessing as soon as I posted the ID. Glad the link helped.

Thanks for the help. I think based on the links you sent & some other pics of same bird I took it is the Livingstone's Turaco (Tauraco livingstonii), which appears to be native to Africa so must have been brought to this sanctuary by humans. thanks!
