[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was one of the species I was looking forward to see on my Egypt trip. And finally on the last day I found it on the Kitchener Island in Aswan, so happy!!

Despite its attractive and distinctive plumage, the
hoopoe is superbly camouflaged for its ground-feeding behavior in its preferred dry habitats. This bird is so outstandingly unique that it was revered in ancient Egypt, is a symbol of virtue in Persia and is the national bird of Israel.
