One of my favourite birds, and some times very accommodating to photograph , I must have taken thousands of photos on my trips to Africa but out of the small number on wall, two are bee-eaters

Hello Tayla unfortunately I live too north to see bee European bee eaters, I look at all pictures instead they are little jewels. I must say that there are so many striking bird species in Londolozi.

Tayla these bee-eaters are so colorful and each and everyone of them are special. They also make beautiful sounds. I love the bee-eaters and there were a few of them that flew over our house, you can hear them from far away, how they communicate with each other.

Thanks very much for this article on bee-eaters, all of them also my favorites.
Their colors are just stunning. The more I read and learn about birds in general, the more interesting and amazing I find them.

Oh golly Tyler, I certainly understand where you are coming from ! we have the European bee-eaters migrating over Malta in the spring and the autumn and somehow, that beautiful call of theirs (though they may be almost invisibly high), catches my ear immediately and brings a huge smile to my face. I miss the other bee-eaters but the European Bee Eater gives me such a warm feeling when they stop over here on their way north or south. A very special bird indeed 🙏🏻❤️

Sorry Tayla, my computer seems to insist on changing the spelling of your name 😂

Absolutely beautiful birds! Amazing that some migrate, while others don’t? Interesting article thanks.

Wonderful blog about the bee eaters Tayla. They are certainly a beautiful little bird with a wonderful song. The only one I haven’t spotted is the white fronted bee eater but my favorite is the Little Bee-eater. The feather colors are so bright and cheerful. I appreciated the photos you included of these little birds as well.
