A little similar to the White-cheeked Turaco, Hartlaub's Turaco is also native to East Africa -- from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania (the White-cheeked is mainly from Ethiopia/Eritrea). Its bill is less red and the white patch under its eye is a thin, horizontal line rather than broad vertical.

They usually run and climb in trees but don't fly much unless danger threatens. The beautiful red under-wings warn other birds of danger.
