Red-bearded Bee-eater taking a beetle

posted in: Bee-eaters, Feeding-invertebrates | 0

Chris Lee’s image of a Red-bearded Bee-eater (Nyctyornis amictus) taking a beetle complements an earlier post of the bird taking a cicada and another taking a lizard as well as a cicada.

The food of the Red-bearded Bee-eater is mainly insects, hawked in flight. These include cicadas, crickets, large beetles, termites, ants, wasps, hornets and carpenter bees.
