Upapa epops

Ave común en muchos ambientes pero sobre todo en huertos y cultivos arbóreos de secano. Tiene el tamaño de una tórtola y un vuelo característico que recuerda al de las mariposas, con una típica cresta que levanta cuando está en alerta o expectante.

Son muy conocidos sus hábitos de nidificar en huecos de árboles o de tapias, donde realiza una o dos puestas de cinco a ocho huevos, comenzando a criar mediada la primavera. El nido huele muy mal, existiendo la creencia popular de que los adultos lo confeccionan con excrementos pero éstos corresponden a los polluelos que van acumulando al no retirarlos s padres.

This is a shot to be very proud of. The composition couldn't be better. Rule of thirds, the out of focus foreground and the muted background all make the subject really stand out. And the detail of that incredible bird is excellent. Well done!!

Outstanding bird photography. It looks like it would be in the Kingfisher family.
