fine photos, Prabir. I don't know whether the hoopoe exists in India now - its very long since I saw one. The other, of course, is unheard of here. Very well taken, both.
And thanks to JJ for directing me here.

Thanks a lot all!
Raghu, Common Hoopoe still exists in India. You can sight one if you are lucky.
