If you know what Pinterest is, you'll understand.
Photos found there are supposed to link back to the web page they came from.
In this case, though, it linked back to a blog that did npt identify the bird.

Who IS this gorgeous creature?

A species of turaco, from Africa. Need to be able to see the wing pattern / colour to tell which species of Turaco; could be either Livingstone's Turaco Tauraco livingstonii or Knysna Turaco Tauraco corythaix, or possibly Green Knysna Turaco Tauraco persa.
