|Red-crested turaco, Niagara Falls Aviary, Canada|
As a national bird
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.
In popular culture
In the 1998 movie The Parent Trap, the bird that frightens Meredith when the twins launch her into the lake on an air mattress while camping is a red-crested turaco. This is geographically incorrect as the birds are native only to Angola while the scene is set in Northern California.
