Western Grey Plantain-eater (Crinifer piscator)

It's been a while since I wanted to post this picture not because it is a bird not native of Arizona nether the USA itself, but because I can't hardly see it's eye.
But it is a nice bird so here it is...


The Grey Plantain-eater, or Western Grey Plantain-eater, Crinifer piscator, is a large member of the turaco family, a group of large arboreal near-passerine birds restricted to Africa.

This species is a resident breeder in open woodland habitats in tropical west Africa. It lays two or three eggs in a tree platform nest.

Hi Everton.
I wish to came back and comment this charming bird. It is very beautiful. I like its shapes, haircut and clothes as well as attractive colour pattern. Scenery is also amazing and detailed perfectly. I welcome very impressive horizontal cropping of the image and nice natural colours. Well done and kind regards.
