HOOPOE

The hoopoe is a colourful bird found across Afro-Eurasia, notable for its distinctive "crown" of feathers.

The hoopoe was classified in the clade Coraciiformes, which also includes kingfishers, bee-eaters, and rollers.

A close relationship between the hoopoe and the woodhoopoes is also supported by the shared and unique nature of their stapes.

The fossil record of the hoopoes is very incomplete, with the earliest fossil coming from the Quaternary.

It is the only extant member of its family, although some treatments consider some of the subspecies as separate species.

Hello Marius,
I was thrilled just to get a glimpse of a Hoopoe while in Israel, but never got a shot. You must have been excited to be able to capture such a fine image of this beautiful specimen. Wonderful detail and gorgeous colors. Awesome eye contact with just a tad bit of catchlight visible. The insect is a bonus!!
