Well, this is about 10 years too late, but that, my dear, is a Hoopoe. A summer visitor from Scandanavia to the Russian Far East, wintering in Africa, S&SE Asia, China south of Chiangjang River.

Favors open woodland, forest edge, groves and thickets, especially in river valleys, and in parks and gardens. The surrounding Kunming area would provide an excellent habitat for the Hoopoe.

It likes to eat insects and other invertebrates in dry soil or sandy ground.
