The Hoopoe  (Upupa epops) is found in much of Europe, Asia and North Africa. Hoopoe is partially migratory while the southern populations are sedentary. The European population moves in August to October to wintering areas in Africa, and will return in April to May.
Hoopoe nests in tree holes, among blocks of stone, often stone walls.
Hoopoe feeds on large insects and small lizards, and likes to pick in droppings for food.
The Hoopoe is Israel's national bird.
