Northern Carmine Bee-eater

Merops nubicus

This species is very similar to the southern carmine bee-eater but lacks the brilliant carmine throat of its southern counterpart, having a well-defined green-blue throat instead.

We first recorded this species in September 2011 as we arrived at our beach-side accomodation in Watamu, Kenya.
