This magnificent bird is
often conspicuous by the noisy behaviour, often in large flocks travelling to
water in the morning and evening.
The male has rounded crest, when erected it is forward over the forehead. The
tail bears the distinctive red panels, that are best seen when in flight.
Found in a variety of habitats from tall wet mountain forests of the south east
to the open tropical forest of the far north. Found in the interior, especially
where there are tree-lined rivers. Have been seen in large flocks in Central
