Zambizi Crested Guinea
This species inhabits thicker forested areas, more than other guinea, they travel in flocks numbering 20 or more foraging for insects and fallen fruit. They are monogamous and form pair bonds. Gathering in large groups at waterholes, they are at their most vunerable and scatter at the slightest alarm.

Tying with Zambizi Crested Guinea Feathers
This species differs from the Kenya Crested in that the spots are more white than blue and the background is blacker rather than dark blue.
Uses for these feathers are the same as the Kenya Crested.
|Body Contour Feathers||$0.00|
On first inspection, the color and pattern on the body feathers are very close to those on Kenya Crested.
However, check out the close up of the body feather on the right.
The dots are white and if you look closely, you will see hints of mahagony running through the dark background.

Here is a bird that was collected on a hunting expedition to Africa. It was skined and salted in camp and was brought back to be prepared as a trophy mount.
However, as you can see the skinning job prevented this. Other than some staining on the middle of the back, how could you find a better specimen?
