Red Billed Wood-Hoopoe (HD Video) (aka Green WoodHoopoe)

I filmed these Red-Billed Woodhoopoes in a garden in East London, South Africa.
It is also sometimes known as the Green Wood-Hoopoe.

It has a long, curved red bill, red legs and white wingbars. The long tail has white bars in the outer feathers. The male has a longer (and more decurved) bill than the female. They are usually found in groups in the forest, and sometimes will mix in with groups of Violet Wood-Hoopoes.
