Uḍḍīyoḍḍīya (उड्डीयोड्डीय) means “flying high in various directions”, as mentioned in the Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta 2.6.76ff.—Accordingly:—“[...] Then He [i.e., Kṛṣṇa] greeted all the people of Vraja and entered the best of cowherd villages with the gait of an elephant. The forest animals were miserable because now they had to part from Him. [...] The birds flew here and there [i.e., uḍḍīyoḍḍīyauḍḍīya-uḍḍīya] high over the village to watch Him, but when night came and they could no longer see Him they cried out as if weeping and flew away. [...]”.
