» This bird looks like a Black-billed Wood-hoopoe, but some members of the flock had obvious red bills and legs, so it should be an immature Green Wood-hoopoe / smb. Comments from Nigel Redman. This bird is a Black-billed Wood-hoopoe. Eritrea is well outside the known range of Green Wood-hoopoe. The northern race p.s. abyssinicus can have an all red bill but this is little known.
