Draw more attention to Knysna by taking one minute to vote for my favourite bird, the Knysna Turaco a.k.a. the Knysna Loerie.
The experts at BirdLife South Africa have whittled down the list of South Africa’s birds to 52 species and invite all South Africans to “meet some of your neighbours” and vote for their favourite bird in a fun and feathery poll.
Voting closes on 28 February 2015.

The turaco’s cawing call is evocative of our mist-shrouded mountain forests. It has no equal for nimble branch-running in the canopy, but when it does take wing its ruby-red primaries are stunning, both for sheer contrast and because their copper-based pigment may well be unique in the animal world. How can you not vote for such a handsome candidate?
IMPORTANT NOTE: This poll is set to recognise an IP address. There are two types of IP address; static and dynamic. Most internal IP addresses are static, meaning that they stay the same and individual computer IP addresses are usually dynamic, meaning they can change every time you log on or reboot your computer. Different office networks will be dependent on how they are set up. The poll component checks the server IP address, so BirdLife South Africa recommends that if the office network has a static IP, then individuals would need to vote via their mobile phone or home computer.
