Last hoopoes are observed in various places from the first half of August up to the third ten-day of September and October. Average long-term dates of the last observation in separate regions fluctuate from 29.08 till 20.09 (Table). Variation (standard deviation) of times of departure fluctuates from 9,1 to 17,9 days in different regions, on average it makes 12,9 ± 0,5 days (n = 25). Phenological map of departure was prepared. For a longest time hoopoes stay in west, central and south-east parts of Ukraine. There are three stripes of earlier departure (Fig.). [English].
