Hoopoe Pictures and Detail (Upupa epops) A Colorful Bird with a Crown

Hoopoe Pictures and Detail (Upupa epops)  I was following this bird for some to take its pictures, however, I didn't succeed for five months. I was mainly attracted towards this Hoopoe because of crown on its head. It is common to see a Hoopoe in India when we show some patience. After Initial some failures, I got many good pics of Hoopoe with full grown (shown above taken on 26/01/2016). 
Luckily, I was sitting with my camera on the rooftop, then from nowhere a Hoopoe appeared and so I succeeded in getting a few of its pictures. It looked that Hoopoe has no problem with me taking his pictures; therefore, he sat there for 7-8 minutes. This time was enough for me to take some good pictures of Hoopoe. 


The Hoopoe is the national bird of Isreal and it is an Afro-Eurasian bird meaning it is found in Africam, Asia, Europe and at many other places/islands. The Hoopoe is one of highly noticed bird because of crown like feathers on his head, which he can open and close.
