These birds like to breed for example in holes in walls, tree clefts, and knotholes. Old meadows with scattered fruit trees, like those in the Seichböhl, make for an excellent habitat. To learn more about these traditional orchards, see the news article on the review of the nexus assessment. The Eurasian hoopoe eats many insect pests and has long been noted by humans: hoopoes feature for example in Ancient Egyption and Minoan culture, the Vainakh religion, and the Quran, among other works. They are also noted as not kosher, meaning not to be eaten, in the Torah and the Bible.
