“Most urban residents have not even seen this very handsome bird. And many of those who saw – don’t know what it is called hoopoe. Birds quickly ran across the grass, catching insects with its long beak. Sometimes they echoed the deaf sounds heard as “od-od” or “UD-UD” , – the eyewitness reported.
According to the Ukrainian society for protection of birds, the hoopoe is a very interesting bird with a bright chestnut colour of the upper part of the torso, the striped black-and-white plumage of the wings and the tail and tuft on the head, which can unfold and emerge.
