The hoopoe /ˈhuːpuː/ (Upupa epops, “hudhud”) is a colourful bird found across Afro-Eurasia, notable for its distinctive “crown” of feathers. It is the only extant species in the family Upupidae. Like the Latin name upupa, the English name is an onomatopoeic form which imitates the cry of the bird. The hoopoe is the national bird of Israel. via Tumblr http://ift.tt/1Mp2JYj
