Bird

Just saw a new bird at NK, 6:09 P.M. SA time at watering hole, making noise also. Does anyone know what it was. Looked dark, long tail and feathers on head resembling a cockatoo??? Wakka Wakka

You can find a picture of the grey go-away bird in the Africam  Birds Database

 

It gets its name from a belief that the go away bird (grey lourie) sits in the tree and warns the other animals of any aproaching cats, the call sounds like it is saying "go away go away"  It likes to eat fruit and flower buds and new leaf buds.
