Corythaixoides concolor has four subspecies:
Woodland, savanna and, in arid areas, riverine woodlands.
In pairs or small groups. Alert and inquisitive, these birds are highly vocal when alarmed; their loud, nasal kwÃª or kwaa often alerts other wildlife of the approach of a predator (or photographer).
Agile in trees, where it forages for fruit, flowers, buds, leaves. Insects and nestlings are also eaten.
The nest is an simple platform of sticks in a tree, usually at a height of 3-10 m above the ground. One to four pale blue eggs are laid; the incubation period is 26-28 days.
