Swallow-tailed bee-eater eating


Food
Insects are the food source for swallow-tailed bee-eaters. Especially in the early morning hours you can regularly spot these
birds percing on low branches. They suddenly fly off in an erratic looking flight pattern, only to return with an insect as
a small portion of breakfast.
