Gran Canaria 2

Some more of the birds from Gran Canaria. This first snap of a Common Waxbill is taken just after dawn, literally outside of the hotel itself on some undeveloped land in Maspalomas. One wonders how long this plot will remain undeveloped.

A pair of pink birds (any help in improving this classification much appreciated!):

Again just outside the front of the hotel we found 4 Hoopoe, 2 fighting, one watching and one perched aloft and singing, now we know where the name Hoopoe comes from :)

A blurry snap but it shows the bird with the crest down:

Another dawn snap hence the flash, but a much better view of the crest:
