The Little Green Bee Eater

One of the best “thrills” of bird watching is when you take a first timer along and show them the ropes. And a bee eater always draws the best reaction. It always amuses me to  see their reaction when you tell them that these birds solely survive on insects that they catch on the wing or that in some parts of the country, they are more abundant that the common crow.

This little fellow let me get really up close. I was barely five feet away when i took this picture. It tells us how used to humans these birds are. Not entirely sure if thats a good thing though.
