Little Green Bee-Eater

Little Green Bee-Eater

Sinhagad Valley Project:

The Green Bee-eater is quite a poser, as I have discovered. Again, an exceptionally striking bird, the Green Bee-eater, Merops orientalis, is a near passerine bird in the bee-eater family. They are mainly insect eaters and they are found in grassland, thin scrub and forest often quite far from water. This one, and its kind, put up quite a show at Sinhagad Valley.  They are there in abundance and emerge once the sun is out, looking to catch insects to feed upon.

I thought this shot was a bit arty, so chose to put it up 🙂
