Since days I am watching a Hoopoo couple in my garden foraging. Always in pouring rain. But today .
the couple enjoyed ---
the warming sun beams in the
naked branches of the avocado tree:
The male tried again and again
to attract the attention of Miss Hoopoo:
"Answer my craves! I am in love with you even above my crest!":
Gracious Miss Hoopoo allowed the male to part this branch with her:
And soon the couple in love billed unrestrained and
tickled each other with their long beaks:
And as the male also showed his diligent flying skills, Miss Hoopoo followed him instantly!
Hopefully both will visit me soon together with their family!
