It was hungry?

Actually the correct answer is that ssp epops is strongly migratory between
Eurasia and Africa, the bird would have got here the same way the Eurasian
Roller did on Cocos Island and Baltic Gull in Broome, by accident down the
wrong side of the Indian Ocean. 

Cheers Jeff.

Okay I'll bite.  How the heck did a Hoopoe come to be at Roebuck Roadhouse?
