I am surprised nobodu recognises an eaglingo!


Nyamera; close, but a flameagle is brown, with a flamingo-like bill.

Nope and nope.


OK,some tips.


- We're looking for something bigger than a chat.

- this is a juvenile. The first year these birds have some black in their crown (which turns paler later) and rufous in their primaries (which turns into the same color as on their backsides).

- it does not like building nests

- turacos are from the same order


NOW you really should find it...
