The Eurasian hoopoe (Upupa epops) is a distinctive bird species known for its striking appearance and unique behavior. However, it’s not native to Tenerife or the Canary Islands. The Eurasian hoopoe is typically found in Europe, Asia, and parts of Africa, preferring open woodland, savannahs, grasslands, and farmlands.

If you’re interested in birds found in Tenerife, you might want to explore species that are native to the Canary Islands or those that are commonly found there due to migration or accidental occurrences. Tenerife is home to several endemic species, including the Tenerife blue chaffinch and the Canary Islands chiffchaff, as well as a wide variety of migratory birds that pass through the islands during different times of the year.
