Little Bee-eater

Merops pusillus

This tiny, green-backed bee-eater with a yellow throat, black collar and rufous underparts is a common resident in savanna, woodland, forest edges and around wetlands

We first recorded it in April 2010 while staying at Thonga Beach Lodge on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal, but have seen it many times since.
