Birding in Mozambique 

Here are two other examples of beautiful birds from the village and both are cooperative breeders (breeding pair assisted by the rest of the group members). That’s why they are always found in groups of 2-14 birds (av. 3-4). They both are very common residents to our area.

The Green Wood-hoopoe (Phoeniculus purpureus, 33 cm). They eat insects (especially larvae), centipedes, geckos, frogs but also fruit and nectar. The nest is in a tree cavity, usually natural but the old woodpecker and barbet holes can be occasionally used. They are parasited by Greater and Lesser Honeyguides.

The White-crested Helmet-Shrike (Prionops plumatus, 18 cm). They eat insects, spiders and small lizards. The cup nest is constructed by all members of the group and thickly bound with cobweb (caught with the crest by flying through the web…). The incubation is shared by all members.
