Hoopoe

Hoopoe
A strange looking fairly small bird that breeds in farming districts and open, grazed country. It spends most of its time feeding on the ground.
We saw these birds two or three times on our birding trip and this one posed rather nicely.
This was one of our must see birds for the trip.
Our guide was excellent and we saw almost every bird we had hoped for.

They seem to be fairly common in Spain but we have a few in Holland too (in the South, not here in the North unfortunately). Beautiful bird and capture.

Buena captura. Upupa epops, la imagen capta los tonos adecuados del lugar, es un ave del calor. Si metes la mano en su nido, te lanza sus excrementos que huelen horrible. Comprobado.
