Birds of Cochin: Blue-Tailed Bee Eater

One dreary morning at work, I heard the twittering of birds outside and spied this bee eater snapping up insects from its perch on an electric wire. Bees are its favorite food, but it’ll also make do with insects. It’s amazing that such a pretty, dainty-looking bird can make short work of those fearsome stingers.


  1. Excellent shots!

    • Thank you!

  2. That is great timing!
