Also known as the Eastern grey plantain-eater, the eastern plantain-eater is a large (20 in) species of turaco (Musophagidae) which occurs in open woodland habitats in tropical eastern Africa. Eastern plantain-eaters are fairly noisy and gregarious birds, with groups feeding on a wide range of fruits (especially figs) and other vegetable matter.
