Its most recognizable feature is the mop-like crest of black feathers on its head. It lives in flocks of about 20 most of the year. The flocks separate into pairs during the breeding season which last from April to June. The birds return to the large flocks when the young are mature enough to fend for themselves. It is found in southern Somalia, Kenya east of the Rift Valley from Mt. Kenya southwards, northeastern Tanzania and on the islands of Zanzibar and Tumbatu.
