@thanks Ava,Mayra,Laura,Emma,Marta and Christy,they stay in this area for several days,this is day one :) we have more than hundred pictures of them,the distance betwen us and them is not more than 10m,at first i was hurried because of my cats army,but they dont have the minimum chanche, this guys are allways in open field and dont gived any oportunity to the cats ,after a afternoon the cats limit them selfs to observing the hoopoe's couple feeding during the rest of the days :) i never saw this species so close,they where like in there home,completly relaxed controling every thing with great profissionalism :) lovely,in next days i'll load one or two more spottings about them feeding a cricket and resting in the trees arround.They came to portugal to nest ,i hope they stay close so i can keep a eye in them.
thanks you all for the nice comments and my excuses by the latte awnser to the comments.thanks people :)
