Thanks for visiting, Karen!There are many species of bird which regurgitates food debris; I have not managed to photograph only bee eaters....
For detectives (biologists, photographers, hunters .....) are indices precious that can meet these species in the zone :)

Very cool shot! I knew that owls regurgitate pellets but I hadn't realized smaller birds exhibit this behavior!
