Fischer's turaco (Tauraco fischeri) is named after the German explorer Gustav Fischer. It has a distinctive white and black tipped red crest. The red pigmentation also appears dorsal along the nape of the neck. Found in Kenya, north-east Tanzania, and southern Somalia, it prefers humid forests areas – natural habitats include subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and moist montanes, and arable land. It can be seen in dry open savanna woodlands, farms, parks and suburban gardens - often near water.
