Rainbow Bee Eaters
33.00 x 61.00 (centimeters)
 
The Rainbow Bee Eater is one of Australia's most remarkable and interesting birds. Behind the obvious beauty and striking features, lives a bird with more than one interesting habit. From a long distance a Rainbow Bee Eater can see its prey and swoop and capture insects, more often bees, before it lands on a nearby branch to wipe and squeeze the sting out. This bird constructs a nest in a chamber at the end of a tight tunnel it digs in the wall of an earthen bank.
