[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grey Go-away-bird (Corythaixoides concolor), also known as Grey Lourie, Grey Loerie or Kwvol, is a Southern African bird of uniform grey colour, black beak and strikingly pink gape. It is widespread in savanna woodland, a clumsy flier though extremely agile in clambering through tree crowns. It has a distinctive loud alarm call ("quare", rhyming with "square") fancifully sounding like "Go-away". The crest is raised when excited.

Its diet is mainly fruit, like wild figs, berries, flowers and buds, leaves, termites and snails. Its habitat is dry open savanna woodlands, farms, parks, and suburban gardens, often near water.
