Green Wood Hoopoe (Phoeniculus purpureus)

Hann park, near Dakar, Senegal. Originally ID'd as Black-billed Woodhoopoe (Phoeniculus somaliensis). Informed that these are more likely juvenile Greens, whose bills will eventually turn red. The black-billed being smaller and lacking the elongated tail. My thanks again to Martin.
