Purple Crested Turaco

It is found in Burundi, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
These birds primarily consume fruits whole like many other large frugivores which are suggested to be necessary for effective ecosystem functioning.

This bird has a purple coloured crest above a green head, a red ring around their eyes, and a black bill. The neck and chest are green and brown. The rest of the body is purple, with red flight feathers.Purple-crested turacos are considered to be large frugivores that are known to carry cycad seeds from various plant species long distances from feeding to nesting sites.[4] After fruit consumption, they regurgitate the seeds intact where they can germinate nearby.
