Was walking out of the house to throw away some trash, then I saw a pair of these striking green birds sitting on the lighting pole. I dropped the trash and dashed back in to get the camera. When I came back out, only one was still hanging around. in fact, it was curious in me too.
It flew from one tree to another, even directly over head me at times. Most of it’s body is green, but had parts of blue and a red head. My internet research later revealed that it was a Blue-throated Bee-eater.
Nice catch. But I need a better lens and a better tripod!
