Eurasian Hoopoe

On the 14th of Oktober 2011 I drove with the car to the isthmus of Jandía. We took the curvy road inside Costa Calma village up tot he sandy plain. Up on the highest point we crossed a hiking trail. The trail is marked with red-and-white posts. Here I saw not only Houbara Bustard, Black-bellied Sandgrouse, Eurasian Thick-knee, Lesser Short-toed Lark but also in total 6 Eurasian Hoopoe, which were feeding on the ground.
