Birding in Batie

This picture does NOT do justice to this poor Green Turaco, who sat so patiently and let Cristina and I admire him for minutes on end today! The photo should should show a tail and wings of dark violet, a pale green head (you can barely make out the amazing green crown), and Cleopatra-like white eyelines.

Moments later, the bird took off, revealing bright red under the wings! He was life bird #2,082, one of 10 today.

Unfortunately, I did not get photographs of the others. Still, an excellent few hours of birding in Batie, a cute town just 20 minutes from Bandjoun.
