The Hoo-hoo is a species of firebird native to Japan.
Behind the scenes
- Hō-ō (Japanese:
鳳凰), sometimes known in English as the hoho bird, is the Japanese pronunciation of the more common Chinese name, Fenghuang, a bird from East Asian mythology with similarities to the phoenix. This same creature also served as the inspiration for the phoenix-like Pokémon, Ho-Oh.
- In the 2018 audio edition of Quidditch Through the Ages, Imogen Church as Ginevra Potter pronounced "hoo-hoo" as "who-who", which is very different from the Japanese
