Lapwing. (Hebrew, duciphath) occurs only in Leviticus 11:19, and in the parallel passage of Deuteronomy 14:18, amongst the list of those birds which were forbidden by the law of Moses to be eaten by the Israelites. Commentators generally agree that the hoopoe is the bird intended. The hoopoe is an occasional visitor to England, arriving for the most part in the autumn. Its crest is very elegant; each of the long feathers forming it is tipped with black.
