Photo of a hoopoe (bird) in China in China

This bird is a hoopoe and I saw it in Beijing just outside the Forbidden City. It's a pinkish bird with black and white wings. The bird's crest raises like this when it is excited. The hoopoe is relatively rare in the UK and is sometimes seen when it arrives on the south coast by mistake as it tries to migrate between Africa and mainland Europe.
