Bee eater

Bee eaters aren't very common birds around my part of the country, but there is a group of them that live in the river bank on the Sundays River near Colchester east of Port Elizabeth.  I went on the Sundays River Ferry the other day and the captain pointed them out to us as we passed.  Unfortunately it was dark and overcast and the boat was rocking, so the picture isn't very sharp.  But I'm heading back on the ferry next week and hopefully the sun will be shining.


  1. The contrast of brilliant bird and gray background works great. Saw a few bee eaters in Kruger.

  2. Thats what i love about mother nature! the chance to see it again! =)love the colors on this bird!~
