Please help me identify this bird. I took the photo at San Diego Seaworld in 2011.

These are some species of Touraco. Take a look here and I think you'll find your species. These birds are beautiful when they fly as you can see from some of the photos here: http://www.google.com/images?q=Touraco&client=safari&rls=en&hl=en&tbm=isch&ei=V3FQUrf9GIHo8QSbz4GgAQ&start=20&sa=N

Thanks Bill, you are right. I found out they are the Lady Ross Touraco from central and southern Africa. Apparently they are pretty common, I think they look prehistoric. Cheers.
