Birds of Parque Alamillo

A little park in the north of Sevilla, with enough Eucalypt biomass to be Australia and an inexplicable grove of orange trees. (who rule the world? eucaliptos)
Hoopoe (Upupa epops)
I saw a Hoopoe! Such a cool bird, and with arguably one of the most awesome latin names (Upupa epops!)

Common waxbill! I think these guys are introduced but that doesn’t stop them from being super cute!

I don’t know what this guy is (if you do, enlighten me in the comments below!), but he was scruffy looking

Maybe Cetti’s Warbler?
Coot (Fulica atra)
Coot! I’ve seen these guys all around the world, and they’re not that interesting, but at least they are easy to ID (Fulica atra)
Ring-necked Parakeet (Psittacula krameri)
Geez with the eucalypts and the parrots, I thought I might be in Brissie for a minute or two; this is an invasive Ring-necked Parakeet (Psittacula krameri)

  1. Hoopoe? A delightful name that seems fitting for such an unusual bird. (I googled the name and learned among other things that they’re the national bird of Israel.)
