Carmine Bee-eater

The Carmine Bee-eater is a resident of Wooded savannas, grassy plains, swamps, lakeshores and mangrove forests from Senegal to Somalia. Southern species breed in Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. Moves into South Africa after breeding.

They nest in large colonies of 100-1,000 pairs and lay 2-5 eggs at end of a nest burrowed in steep earthen cliffs.

Carmine bee-eaters feed as they fly, sometimes soaring above 300 feet. The northern species ride on the backs of large mammals catching insects flushed into the open. They also fly beside vehicles and herds and are attracted to brushfires, taking advantage of all opportunities to seize escaping insects.
