Common Hoopoe

Clicked on: June 4, 2012 (19:40 hrs)

Wife remembered this Common Hoopoe from her childhood as a Woodpecker pecking away in the garden. I too must have seen the Hoopoe before, but since I don't register things unimportant to me, I obviously did not remember.

We saw this bird near the several farms on the way to Jhirna in the evening. The morning trip to Jhirna had not shown us many species, so the jeep's driver was putting in an extra effort to help us spot birds through the ride. He patiently waited while I took pictures of this one.

It shows itself in parts of Gurgaon too. Seen it in Greenwoods and Tau Devilal Park...can be fun to see it having a dust bath.
