Lapwing
        the name of an unclean bird, mentioned only in Lev. 11:19 and
        Deut. 14:18. The Hebrew name of this bird, "dukiphath", has been
        generally regarded as denoting the hoope (Upupa epops), an
        onomatopoetic word derived from the cry of the bird, which
        resembles the word "hoop;" a bird not uncommon in Israel.
        Others identify it with the English peewit.
