Hoopoes are colorful birds found across Africa, Asia, and Europe and are notable for their distinctive "crown" of feathers. Three living and one extinct species are recognized. They were considered sacred in Ancient Egypt, and were "depicted on the walls of tombs and temples". At the Old Kingdom, the hoopoe was used in the iconography as a symbolic code to indicate the child was the heir and successor of his father. They achieved a similar standing in Minoan Crete. In the Torah, Hoopoes were considered detestable creatures and not Kosher, but over time managed to win over the populace in 2008 becoming the National Bird of Israel. Hoopoes were seen as a symbol of virtue in Persia, a harbinger of war to the Vikings and a symbol of satanic magic to Monks of the Middle Ages.

The Woodhoopoes (Scimitarbills) are a morphologically distinct group and unlikely to be mistaken for any other and are found in Sub-Saharan Africa. They have metallic plumage, often blue, green or purple, and lack a crest. The sexes are similar in all but two species. Their bills are either red or black and distinctly curved giving them their name, Scimitarbill.

This set includes all the species of Hoopoes and Scimtarbills found throughout the world. As with all Songbird ReMix sets, the birds included have fold-able wings, crests that open and retract, and a host of other controls to offer unparalleled bird model articulation.

The set comes in two versions, native Poser and DAZ Studio, with support for Firefly, Superfly, 3Delight and Iray renderers..
