The colorful European Bee-eater is not just that, it is an intelligent hunter. Although this painting plays on the name, they actually hunt insects in the air and then proceed to thrash their prey against tree branches to remove the sting from the bee. One Bee-eater can consume up to 250 bees per day. They breed and mate for life in Europe but migrate to South Africa in the summer. They impact the environment by burrowing to make their nests, turning the earth, and altering the environment by unearthing nutrients in the soil for other species. Their conservation status is stable.
