Brief Summary

Read full entry


This arboreal bird mainly feeds on fruits, with figs (Ficus), Juniperus procera and Podocarpus gracilior being the main food plants (2) (4). No definitive information is available on the reproductive biology of Prince Ruspoli's turaco, but there are local reports that it breeds from December to February in Sidamo Province, which requires investigation (2). Hybrids between this species and the white-cheeked turaco (T. leucotis)have been observed, most commonly in edge habitats (4).
