This is one of the few birds we birdwatchers can get our non-birding friends to actually see. Sometimes, they get those folks started on seeing other birds, and that is a good thing. Little ambassadors:-)

Thank you Kirst! The white fronted bee eater is truly beautiful.

They are very pretty birds. Their colors are unique. I bet they are entertaining to watch, no doubt. Very interesting story. Thank you for sharing this information.

They are so colourful and beautiful. When they do the sand bathing it looks as if they are lying in the sand having a sun tan. Kirst can you please tell me what are the names of the other bee-eaters are there at Londolozi. I am overwhelmed by their beautiful colours.

I love the bee eaters!!! Thanks for the fascinating deep dive Kirst – one of my very favorite aspects of the Londolozi blogs.

That is a really interesting tale of the white fronted bee eaters Kirst. So, even birds are unfaithful to their partners eh? Would love to see the look on the unsuspecting owner of the other nest that these eggs have been placed in. Thanks so much for sharing with me – I love birds and you have some beautiful species in Africa.

We have often seen the various bee eaters on safari, but it is interesting to learn of their clan activities and the occasional goings on!! They are certainly gorgeously colored !! Thank you Victoria
