Perching on a sprinkler head gives you a birds eye view of your surroundings.
This is a european bee-eater about 12 inches (29 cm) in length.
It has incredible colours which a field guide describes as "exotically rich and gaudy plumage colours".
Umistakeable with bright yellow throat, bluish underbody, yellowish-white shoulder patches and red-brown crown/back and inner wing-panel above.
Give a 4 year old a box of crayons and ask them to colour a bird and this is the type of thing you would probably get.

Merops apiaster

Buena descripción, es un pájaro pintado por un niño. Es una fantástica fotografía. Al lado de mi casa hay nidos de esta especie, los hacen en la tierra, son túneles horizontales de 1 metro de longitud.
