The Hoopoe is an attractive bird.

 

This one has become a daily visitor to our garden where it keeps busy drilling into the moist soil for worms and other tasty commestibles.

Quel bel oiseau, j'adore sa "coiffure".
Ray: Oui ... un de mes oiseaux préférés, et j'adore l'observer dans ton jardin, Martine.
He's wonderful! The top shot is so beautiful with the back lighting... I love at the end of the video when something startles him and he raises his crest!
Ray: Na dropped something in the outside kitchen, and that have me the nice end to the video. I love watching this bird in the garden, Elizabeth.

Lucky you. Sometimes we get these birds in the UK too..
Ray: They are strong flyers, and seem to be very wide spread. They are common in Thailand, but are quite human shy, Chris.

It is very attractive, too. I especially like it's orange "headdress" smile It seems to well equipped for getting into the soil.
Ray: It is a little like a woodpecker, Alan, but hunts in the soil.

It is indeed, Ray. I have been lucky enough to see two in this country - they are very rare visitors to the British Isles
Ray: Oh...wonderful that you have seen them, Lisl, as I believe they are quite rare in your country.

A very attractive punk styled bird.
Ray: One of my favorites, Chad, and I am delighted that this one is becoming accustomed to seeing me close by.
Fascinating in the video how his head feathers spring up when he hears an unexpected noise.
Ray: The Top Notch is quite expressive, Bill, and most attractive.
Magnifique !!et un chant très beau
Ray: C'est un bel oiseau, Claudine.
It is a fine looking bird, nature has given a very useful beak.
Ray: It is a very vigorous gardener, Brian.
That is an amazing-looking bird. I love it's chevron patterned wings.
Ray: Yes...it is a most attractive sight when flying, Mary.
