White-bellied Go-away Bird is one of the two dry land Turacos that we have in Kenya, the other is Bare-faced Go-away Bird.It South Africa they are referred to as Lorries . These birds are non-migratory. They are weak flyers and, therefore, only fly short distances in a dipping motion. They can climb trees and vines and run almost like squirrels over tree limbs. They are often seen single, pairs or small groups. The bird got its name because of its call that sound like “Go Away”. In Kenya this species is commonly found in arid and semi-arid areas and sometimes bushland grassland habitat. White-bellied and Bare-faced Go-Away bird don’t overlap in their distribution in our region.
