A friend sent me this photo that he took while vacationing in Fuerteventura. On my birding trips to Europe, this was one of the birds I most wanted to see. And I did see it on my trips to Bulgaria and to Hungary. On two occasions the bird had it's crown raised. Spectacular!
Apparently this bird was finding insects to eat in the cracks of the pavement.
