Kennt ihr schon den Wiedehopf? Do you know the hoopoe? [DE/ENG] -Original Travel Video

3년 전

Heute zeige ich euch einen Vogel, der in Deutschland kaum noch zu finden, geschweigedenn zu filmen ist. Das liegt daran, dass der Geselle Wiedehopf sehr scheu ist und es aus diesem Grund sehr schwer ist ihn vor die Linse zu bekommen. Im Mittleren Atlas hatte ich jedoch Glück und konnte mehrere Wiedehöpfe filmen. Heute teile ich mit euch die schönsten Ausnahmen und erzähle euch noch etwas mehr zu diesem wunderschönen Vogel, der in Marokko Hudhud genannt wird. Der Name ist im Deutschen, Englischen und Arabischen onomatopoetisch vom Klang des Vogelgesangs abgeleitet.
Der Wiedehopf hat in einigen Kulturkreisen ausgrund seines Geruches den Ruf eines stinkenden, unreinen Tiers, so sagt man in Deutschland beispielsweise: „stinken wie ein Wiedehopf“. Das kommt daher, dass die Vögel zur verteidigung gegen Feinde sowohl heftig koten als auch ein stinkendes Sekret aus der Bürzeldrüse absondern. Der Wiedehopf taucht auch in Ovids Metarmorphosen auf. Dort verwandelt sich der Thrakerkönig Tereus in den schönen Vogel. Im Koran gibt der Wiedehopf in (27:20) König Solomon Auskunft über die politische Lage in Saba, wohin er ohne Erlaubnis geflogen ist und spioniert hat. In Fariduddin Attars Epos Mantiq ut-tair ist der Wiedehopf der König der Vögel. 2008 hat Israel den Wiedehopf zum Nationalvogel gewählt.
Ich hoffe ihr fandet den Artikel über diesen sehr besonderen Vogel spannend und freut euch jetzt auf das Video. Als kleinen Spaß habe ich die Vogelhochzeit als Backgroundtrack eingefügt, da in diesem Lied der Wiedehupf eine Rolle bekommen hat. Ihr glaubt nicht, wie ich aus dem Häuschen war, als ich und @sature durch den mittleren Atlas spazierten und kletterten und mit einem Male diesen in Deutschland so selten gewordenen Vogel bestaunen konnten.

Viel Licht und Liebe <3

Today I show you a bird that is hardly found in Germany, and not easy film. The reason is that the journeyman Hoopoe is very shy and it is therefore very difficult to get him in front of the lens. In the Middle Atlas, however, I was lucky and was able to film several hoopoes. Today I share with you the most beautiful exceptions and tell you something more about this beautiful bird, which is called Hudhud in Morocco. The German, English and Arabic names are derived from the sound of birdsong.
The hoopoe has due to its smell the reputation of a stinking, unclean animal in some cultures, in Germany for example there is a saying: "to stink like a hoopoe". This is because the birds poo a lot and secrete a stinking secretion from the oil gland to defend themselves against enemies . The hoopoe also appears in Ovid's Metarmorphoses. There, the Thraki king Tereus transforms into the beautiful bird. In the Koran, the hoopoe in (27:20) tells King Solomon about the political situation in Saba, where he flew without permission and spies. Thats why he is known as Solomons bird in Muslem countreys. In Fariduddin Attar's epic Mantiq ut-tair, the hoopoe is the king of birds. In 2008 Israel chose the hoopoe as the national bird.
I hope you enjoyed my article about this very special bird and are now looking forward to see the video. As a little fun I added the bird wedding as a background track, because in this song the hoppoe has got a role. You do not believe how excited I was when I and @sature walked and climbed through the Middle Atlas and suddenly saw this bird which has become so rare in Germany.

Lots of Light and Love <3

Hoopoe is looking so much cute and its back contain a image like some one looking at you. Great pattern by nature it self.


Yes, one of the protection strategies of the Hoopoe is to just hide without moving. The pattern helps :)

Very nice! Last life I was that one!


I can totally imagine that. They are lovely birds <3


I am a hateful person in this life..but last life I was lovely!

I love to see your video ,, what a beautiful bird's name.


Thank you :) I am happy you enjoyed it. It was a hard task to follow those shy birds :)


You are welcome .

When I was a child, about 25-27 years ago I saw many of them. In Persian we call it "comb head" because of the comb like feathers on its head, other than Hodhod that you mentioned on your post.
I gotta confess that I killed 2 of them with my air rifle. Although it's been quite a long time and I not only don't hunt anymore but also I'm against it, still fill sorry.
Great post, sent me to 25 years ago. Feel ashamed, but thank you so much reminding my childhood.


We all make mistakes. Good, that you learned from yours and changed your mind. I think it is a very precious bird and needs to be protected. Thank you for your honest comment. I will check out your blog now :)


Thanks girl. Check out and see what you can find :D

Here in my area there are some Hoopoes (we call him Upupa), but it's difficult to tke some pics of them. I love their way to singing, it's really a characteristic singing ^_^


Yes, it is really a unique sound. The Italian name as well sounds like the song :) It is so cool that this bird seems to always have an onomathopeic name :)

amazing photography
nice capture


Check out the video on dtube as well :) They look more beautiful in action :)

The history of the Solomon bird is intriguing. A beautiful creature and it should pose more often. LOL Thanks @yoganarchista

Hey again,
Been checking steempeak, found out most incoming votes are from you. So just stopped by to say Thanks.

Wunderschöne Fotos 😍😱

sehr gut gemachtes Video da sieht und hört man gerne hin 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Hier auf den Kanarischen Inseln gibt es den Wiedehopf auch noch. Ich würde mir wünschen, von diesem Vogel einmal eigene Videoaufnahmen machen zu können. Live gesehen haben wir ihn hier jedenfalls schon mal... die Hoffnung stirbt also zuletzt... :-)
