We saw these odd looking birds while we were in Spain last year.
This is a male who was sitting at the top of a tall tree and calling.
The latin name is recorded below. I think it sounds like a new age band. Up-upa e-pops.

Upupa epops

Breeds in farming areas and open, grazed country.
Spends much time on the ground, and needs some short grass or bare areas for feeding.
