On this day (March 29th)

Hoopoe

March 29th 2010.

A Hoopoe near my apartment 2 years ago today. This species appears to be reasonably regular in early spring, this was the 3rd time I'd seen Hoopoes in south Hokkaido.........

Still snow on the ground this March and very few birds around town.........

Thanks for clicking this link

  2. It has certainly been strange. Was watching 7 Whooper Swans in 20 ° heat on Monday!
    Only seen one Hoopoe in Scotland in a cemetery in Dundee of all places.
    Hope the spring kicks in for you.

  3. I thought it was impressive to see it on our street but you see them in Dundee and on your own farm! Oh well.......

  4. Is that a Common Hoopoe(Upopa epeops),a species we have here too? Looks like that. Particularly beautiful birds, I really look forward to photograph one.
