Hoopoe



Another beautiful bird. :))) They eat both fruits and insects. They are seen foraging for food on the ground along with Common Mynahs, Babblers, Drongos, Magpie Robins, and sometimes Indian Treepies.

That is a neat looking bird, I have never seen one before. I wonder if I can make my hair look like that.
