The Grey Go-Away-Bird also known as a Lourie (Afrikaans name, Kwevoel) he is famously named after his call that sounds very much like he’s shouting ‘go awaaaay, go awaaaay’. A common bird found all over the highveld and The Kruger National Park.

He is a part of the turaco family and looks quite similar to the mousebirds with his raised crest.

Usually found in small groups and mostly sitting in the top of the acacia trees. We saw these in the Kruger National Park

They feed mainly on fruit and flower buds and nectar.
