European bee-eater (Merops apiaster)

The European bee-eater (Merops apiaster) is a widespread migratory species of bee-eater. It reaches a length between 27-29 cm (10.6–11.4 in). It is a very colourful bird, as is common with bee-eaters. It has a bright yellow throat and turquoise underparts. Head and neck is brown, whereas back and wings are lighter brown to golden with green towards the wing-tips and shoulder. It has a broad black eye-band and red eyes. Males and females are very similar, although females do occasionally have a green back. Juveniles have green back and wings. Breeding populations are found across southern Europe, in northern Africa and southwest Asia. During winter it migrates to sub-Saharan Africa. Some breeding populations are also found in southern Africa.
