Little Bee-eater

Merops pusillus

Size: 17 cm
Habitat: Grassland, woodland and lake shores
Feeding: Flying insects such as bees, wasps, butterflies

This pretty little bird is the smallest of the Bee-eaters in Africa. As it's name suggests, it feeds on bees, wasps and other flying insects.

Many Bee-eater species are gregarious and are seen in large groups. However, the Little Bee-eater is usually seen alone or in pairs.

These photos were taken in Kenya, one in the Amboseli National Park and the other in the Masai Mara.
