Hoopoe


I just love these crazy looking birds and this year we have three – a little family I think visiting the garden regularly.  What a treat.

 

You have to wonder why though don't you!

    • It’s a Hoopoe and that is exactly what they say. A very loud cry of ooo pooo. They visit most years and hang around for a while. I think they come from Africa.

      • Sorry, I realized the name from the title after I posted my comment. I have never seen any bird that looks like that, very unusual indeed. Thank you for the pictures and the information. 🙂
