Working for birds in Africa

Notes on the possible breeding of Prince Ruspoli's Turaco

p 29-30

One of many exciting experiences during a visit to Ethiopia in January - February 1996 was obtaining the first potential information on the breeding habits of the extremely range-restricted Ruspoli's Turaco Tauraco ruspolii. This came about through a chance meeting with local people while observing this rare bird. Through their assistance we were able to examine what was probably the first egg ever known to science.
