  4. Good shots Margaret. I was lucky enough to see one in England once, but in Tuscany I use to see loads of them. They walk around you on the lawn and take no notice of you.

  12. Double WOW!!! This Hoopoe is beautiful and amazing! I have never seen anything like it!! It has the head of a pileated, but the beak of another bird. And black stripes on it's head and body. It even has fall colors!! But it does look like the bright markings are warning not to kill or eat.
