Mr. Turaco… His cheeks are white, as his name suggests, he sports a metallic blue tail, wings that are green and red underneath… A male turaco has just made his appearance at the Naturospace Butterfly House in Honfleur, flying from tree to tree in search of food. As a frugivorous species whose presence has been recorded in Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia, turacos are fond of bananas, kiwi fruit but also red berries. This one will definitely enjoy eating the papayas grown inside our glasshouse once they have ripened; he will then join our other winged lodgers, namely the crested partridges and crowned pigeon for an exotic feast. This turaco shall not stay alone for very long since a female will soon join him.
