Tough little Green Wood-Hoopoe

Carol Hall has sent in this photo of a Green Wood-Hoopoe that has been visiting her garden for a few years now.

You can see that the lower mandible has grown straight instead of curved, but this doesn't seem to have affected this birds ability to feed.

Carol says that the bird is 'a loner' which indicates that it is self sufficient and not being assisted by family members of this usually gregarious species.
