Ever seen a #Hoopoe? For keen bird watchers, #Cyprus is a great destination. The varied terrain provides a great variety of habitats, supporting around 50 native species, plus the island's position on the migration route between Europe and Africa means there are around 350 visiting species annually.  A highlight is the Greater #Flamingo on Akrotiri and Larnaca salt lakes. Our personal favourite is the Hoopoe with its spectacular crest. Photo: Abbas Alley.  Post: Nikki at www.pissouribay.com.

The Hoopoe - Upupa epops - is a colorful bird that is found across Afro-Eurasia, notable for its distinctive 'crown' of feathers.

The Wreathed Hornbill is a species of hornbill found in forests from far north-eastern India and Bhutan, east and south through mainland south-east Asia and the Greater Sundas, except Sulawesi. It is 30–40 in long. Both sexes are similar to the respective sexes of the closely related Plain-pouched Hornbill, but the Wreathed Hornbill can be recognized by the dark bar on the lower throat (hence the alternative common name; Bar-pouched).
