Africa Hoopoe (非洲戴勝)
Namibia (2002)

What is different between Africa Hoopoe and Eurasian Hoopoe (戴勝) ? Some website consider that the colour of the features, Africa one is darker than Eurasian one. However it really hard to identify as Eurasian Hoopoe is a migratory bird which fly to sub-Sahara area during winter.

The stamp issued by Namibia marked the bird as Africa Hoopoe. The illustration of the bird really in dark brown, but two of identify website still cataloged it as Eurasian Hoopoe !
