I know, I know. It's a weird name for a bird why. Well I just thought you people would like to see some photos of this bird. They are only found in a few countries(South Africa, Europe, Asia and North Africa) For more info go to wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hoopoe ... P.s. Heres some photos I took of it

When I first saw the photo I said what a cool bird
then it dawned on me that this bird isn't native to
the Americas', because I couldn't remember seeing it
in any of my research books for North and South America.

P.S. I flew into South Africa when I was in the Air Force
on a relief mission.


Sometimes I wake up grouchy,other days I just let her sleep,while I'am outside in the garden she is

The Hoopoe is my FAVORITE non-North American Bird. It is found all over Europe and Africa. It reminds me of a Punk Northern Flicker. It is one of the coolest birds I have ever seen anywhere.

That is the craziest bird I have ever seen. I thought the Pileated Woodpecker was strange looking!
