May 30th: Bizarre Bird


Hey, look at this really interesting bird I saw on the way to Tabby and Casey's tonight.  Ron and Evelyn said they'd seen them around before, too.  It seems to be some sort of woodpecker, but often on the ground.  I've never seen anything quite like it.  Any of you birders out there know what kind it is? 

Edit: My grandmother looked through her bird books and found it! It is a hoopoe, named for the hooping noise that it makes.

Hello, Nanny said the bird you showed us is called a Hoopoe, pronounced (Hoop and a long o). The sound they make is a hoop sound. Neat picture. She searched her bird book until she found it. I like seeing things they have over there that we don't. MOM
