Biology

Information on the biology of Bannerman's turaco is extremely limited, but fruits are believed to make up the bulk of its diet, primarily the fruits and berries of Podocarpus milanjensis, as well as figs (4). Breeding takes place during the early rainy season from March to June. Nests are rather flimsy platforms of twigs hidden in trees or bushes among a tangle of creepers or the thick foliage on outer branches, and have been recorded anywhere between 1.5 and 10 m above ground. Clutches typically contain two white eggs, which are incubated by both the male and female (4).
