This species is a member of the family Phoeniculidae, the wood hoopoes, and was formerly known as the red-billed wood hoopoe. This conspicuous bird advertises its presence with its loud kuk-uk-uk-uk-uk call and other vocalisations. You cannot miss them when they are around, they are absolutely raucous. The green wood hoopoe is a cooperative breeder and common resident in the forests, woodlands and suburban gardens of most of sub-Saharan Africa. I
