I made this one out of a clay called Super Sculpey - it's oven cured.

Wow! Very Happy
You wouldn't by any chance be a TetZoo reader, would you? I ask because he had an article on hoopoes not too long ago... Fascinating birds, I had no idea they were related to hornbills!

What a masterpiece Harriet! cheers
I almost can't believe you made this bird so accurate! scratch cheers
I saw them in the real, as they are quit common in the in the south of Spain where my brother lives...
You can always hear them hooping in the early morning, and they even breed in wholes in the walls of human settlements... Very Happy
You can be really proud of yourself Harriet, fantastic job! queen
