Tauraco schalowi (Schalow's Turaco)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Schalow's turaco (Tauraco schalowi) is a frugivorous bird in the Musophagidae family. It is named after Herman Schalow. Mature birds have, on average, the longest crests of any turaco species. It occurs in the forested uplands and wooded inland plateaus of south central Africa. It is replaced in the eastern lowlands by Livingstone's turaco, which is comparable in appearance and behaviour. This bird's common name and Latin binomial commemorate the German banker and amateur ornithologist Hermann Schalow.
