White-fronted Bee-eater

Merops bullockoides


It is a richly colored, slender bird, but with a distinctive black mask, white forehead, square tail and a bright red throat. The upper-parts are green, with cinnamon underparts.


They can be found in the vast savannah regions of sub-equatorial Africa. The habitat commonly consists of open country, often near gullies, because this is the region that their food (bees) lives.
