The Red-crested Turaco (Tauraco erythrolophus) is a turaco, a group of Africannear-passerines. It is a frugivorous bird endemic to western Angola. Its call sounds somewhat like a jungle monkey. The National Bird of Angola is the striking, endemic Red-crested Turaco. The turaco itself is becoming a national icon for conservation, especially bird and forest conservation. It occurs quite commonly along the length of the Angolan escarpment and adjacent forested habitats.
