The White-cheeked Turaco is native to East Africa. The nominal subspecies has a black crest (the other subspecies has a part dark and part red crest) with red bill, white spot between eye and beak and white vertical patch on the "cheek," together with green upper body and dark navy blue wings, rump and tail.

The chicks of Turacos have small claws on their wings so they can climb and grip better. Like the South American Hoatzin, they lose these ancient features when they fledge.

The bright light on the birds isn't flash (I don't use flash on birds or most other animals), they are in a brightly-lit place.
