Hoopoe II

November 11, 2009

I very nearly walked right past this bird without noticing, but luckily I did notice and he did not fly away while I was digging out my camera. He works very hard to find a nice juicy bug to eat and his work pays off. If you need a lawn aerated, a Hoopoe might be a good option.

    • The noisy birds in the background are common mynas. They gather just before sunset at the fountain and make quiet a racket. They are a non-native, invasive species related to the starlings I know you are familiar with (although more interesting than starlings).
