Hoopoe (Upupa epops) probing into the ground hunting for insect larvae. The hoopoe is widespread throughout Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, with European and north Asian birds migrating to the tropics in winter. It inhabits areas with open country near vertical surfaces on which to nest. Their diet consists largely of insect larvae, which they find by probing in soil, although they will also take frogs and small reptiles, as well as some fruits and berries. The hoopoe is related to kingfishers and rollers, and can reach a length of around 30 centimetres.
