Hoopoe

Hoopoe, a photo by ricmcarthur on Flickr.
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.
