    Description
    African go-away bird Grey Lourie Corythaixoides concolor alert hunted animals to flee from predators.Game hunters are often frustrated, when their hunted quarry reacts by fleeing from the go-away-bird alarm calls. Go-away bird calls are very helpful to prey animals. They call out loudly gaa-wayrrr "alarm cry" when ever any predators enters its territory. African go-away bird perched atop tree branch, noisily telling others to "go away" with their loud call "gaa-wayrrr" hence the name "go-away" bird Corythiaxoides Leucogaster.
