White-fronted Bee-eater

Merops bullockoides

This mainly green bee-eater with its white and crimson throat has no tail streamers, and can be found in grassland and savanna (often near wetlands and rivers).

We first recorded this common bee-eater in April 2010 while having a picnic with Richard DouglasĀ in Kloofwaters, Magaliesberg.
