[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I catched this bird in the Waza National park along the road at the end of the afternoon, north of Cameroon.

It looked really curious and I have no idea what could be its name. It tried to make some research but it looks like there is too much birds referenced in Cameroon and I have no broadband connection :)

Luckily, Manyee helped me : it could be an African Hoopoe.

Hello Steven,
A great shot of this Hoopoe bird (Upupa epops).
Clear details despite the distance. Good light.
It is a nice composition of this hoopoe on the branches.
Could you have cropped the image closer to give us a better view?
TFS. : )

think i love the background more than the bird, which is perfectly placed and adds a bit of foreground interest.

nice pic, great composition, TFS Ori

Sympathique présentation. C'est un oiseau qui migre jusque chez moi en Suisse. On le nomme houppe.
Bonne journée.

Bonjour Steven,
Excellente image qui nous montre la huppe fasciée. Belle lumière sur l'ensemble qui est très plaisant. J'aime bien la disposition choisie, avec l'oiseau tout à droite.
Bonne journée
