CommentRainbow Bee-eater with insect. This early season (southern region) male was in superb condition, evidenced by the length of his tail streamers. A female was present too. Some of the bee-eaters I see have quite a lot of green of their crowns. This one is mostly chestnut. I wonder if colour variations like this are influenced by aridity of habitat?
