The go-away-birds, Corythaixoides, are a genus of bird in the turaco family (Musophagidae). Unlike many of the brighter forest dwelling turacos these are birds of African open country and have drab grey and white plumage. In Southern Africa these birds are known as kwêvoëls, though they are also called loeries along with the other turacos.
