Look Out For...

The Hoopoe (Tsalapetinos in Greek) is a beautiful insectivor which creates its nest by digging a hole in a tree trunk. Around 28cm in length, coloured black, white and brown, it is characterised by its long-feathered crest which it can raise at will.

The hoopoe migrates from Africa to Greece in the summer and at this time of year, you may see one on Paros, exhausted by its long trip and temporarily unable to continue its journey.

Well done Tassos, who rescued one of these lovely creatures from the predatory cat population of Drios and thanks to Terry from the Aegean Wildlife Hospital for collecting it so that it can have a well-earned rest at the Hospital before continuing on its way.
