Upupa epops.jpg

The hoopoe (Upupa epops) has a huge range across much of Europe, Africa and Asia. Named after its vocalisations, the hoopoe emits a low hoop, hoop, hoop. The pinkish brown to chestnut plumage with black and white bars and an impressive fan-like crest make the hoopoe instantly recognisable. The hoopoe forages mainly on short grass and bare soil for invertebrates.
