Little Bee-eater
Smallest African bee-eater...abundant,
colorful and tame...eats insects, esp.
bees, wasps and hornets.
Merops pusillus
(L 6")
Nairobi National Park
The Bee eaters are teeny weenie in size,
They launch an aerial sortie in the skies,
They snap the preys by fluttering wings,
And rub the insect to remove its sting.
(Mima Nagi)
