The Guinea/Green Turaco (Tauraco persa), is a green bird with a long tail, a tall crest, red eyes with white eye patches and a red beak. It is found in forests of West and Central Africa. It is even more dependent on this habitat than the Violet Turaco. Within its distribution range, it generally prefers mature rain forest edge habitats, bordered by rivers, cultivated and urbanised environments from sea level to around 1100m. It feeds on flowers, fruits, and buds. In flight, Green Turaco's crimson primary flight feathers contrast with the green plumage.
