Here are some birds I photographed yesterday after work. First, a hoopoe on the ground and then in a nearby tree. He (she? not sure) was a good sport and let me take lots of pictures. (Say, can a hoopoe be a ham?)
(Click on any of the pictures to enlarge.)
Another attempt at capturing a woodpecker in pixels:
Finally, our local wild parakeets. My tour guide friend, Dani, told me that the parakeets are elbowing the woodpeckers out of their living space and that this is endangering the woodpeckers. Oy.
Well, at least they don’t eat the same food.
Let’s hope for better bird-related news soon.
